About us

Electric Potential is the first guided resources program built to catalyze Gen Z to become agents of social change who will educate the public, implement effective policy, and/or fund programs that foster impact—ultimately driving changes that improve the standards of living, working, and learning across the globe.

Our story

A Broken World
Hopelessness. Despair. Loss.

We, Gen-Z, have grown up bombarded with a polarized news cycle and social media systems designed to tear us apart.

But rather than give in to pessimism, we have chosen to rise up. We have proven time and time again that we are more than just the generation of the hopeless, but of students, of game-changers, of activists.
Overcoming Barriers to Change

But fighting for social change isn't easy. In our interviews with fellow Gen Z students...
said they want to take more action but feel too lost and overwhelmed
said they’ve been working on activism, but feel isolated, defeated, or just not impactful enough in their effort
said they’re worried about echo chambers, false information or bias in media
Who we are
That’s why Electric Potential was born.

We believe in our generation’s massive electric potential. Our team is youth led and youth centered; we’ve been where you are and want to help you create the world you want to see - whatever that requires.

By building sustainable awareness on social issues through breaking echo chambers, catalyzing impactful actions, and connecting doers, we will create that ripple effect of social impact.


At Electric Potential, we hold 3 values close to our hearts. These values drive everything we do, from our internal meetings to the way we interact with our community.
