Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders.
Their impact on societal issues can bring positive change to communities in the U.S. and around the world.
Empowering a generation of young global citizens
Investing in today’s youth is really an investment in our communities – now and for years to come. When young people believe in themselves and are empowered with the knowledge, skills and resources to be leaders, they have the potential to help change the world for the better and create healthier, stronger and safer communities. Join us in supporting a variety of programs that empower future generations to make a difference in their community.
Allstate and The Allstate Foundation are the National Co-Title Sponsors of WE, a nonprofit organization that offers programs to broaden students’ understanding of social issues and help them determine how to take action.
WE programs include WE Schools, a yearlong free educational program with free service-learning lesson plans, curriculum, activities and campaigns. Any school or youth-serving organization can register for We Schools at WE.org/WE-Schools.
WE Schools participants can earn their way to a WE Day event. The series of one-day, arena-sized events bring speakers and performers together with thousands of youth to celebrate the power young people have to change the world. Information on upcoming WE Day events is available at WE.org/WE-DAY. You can learn more about WE, WE Schools and WE Day by watching the hour-long, Allstate-sponsored WE Day TV special that aired on ABC in August 2016. It’s available to stream at WE.org and Hulu.
This fall, schools and youth-serving organizations can sign up for WE Volunteer Now, a campaign created by WE in partnership with The Allstate Foundation, which challenges youth to team up with their friends to brainstorm, plan and lead a community service project during National Volunteer Week. Information on We Volunteer Now is available at WE.org/WE-Volunteer-Now.
Today’s generation is living proof that good starts young. They’re out feeding the homeless, making neighborhoods safer, and changing our world for the better. But, often negative stereotypes are placed on them.
Allstate’s #THEYSAY Project challenges youth to defy the stereotypes by sharing stories of the good they do every day via social media with #theysay. In doing so, young people can celebrate their potential to change the world—and inspire others to do the same.
The Allstate Foundation joins Facing History and Ourselves in believing that people make choices and choices make history. Facing History and Ourselves is an international educational organization that engages educators and students in an examination of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism as a means to combat prejudice.
For more than 10 years, the Foundation has funded a series of Community Conversations across the country where we feature prominent speakers who engage the community in discussions on the themes of tolerance, social justice, and civic participation. These free events help youth and their parents, teachers, and community members to become good citizens who are more compassionate and tolerant of others.

For more than 60 years, Allstate agency owners and employees have volunteered in Junior Achievement classrooms across the country, from kindergarten up to 12th grade.
As leaders and role models, our volunteers have encouraged the next generation to dream big and reach their full financial potential.
The Allstate Foundation funded “JA Economics for Success,” a curriculum for middle school grades that focuses on careers, smart money management and minimizing financial risk.
