A global nonprofit humanitarian trip or an afternoon spent volunteering with seniors can be a gateway for young people looking to make a difference.
For this month's Local Nonprofit of the Month contest, we are highlighting the work of millennials. We at HuffPost Impact have partnered with GreatNonprofits.org to recognize 10 local organizations helping empower young people who want to give back.
Hear from those who have been touched by these organizations and cast your vote for the nonprofit you think is doing the most inspiring work.
Instructions: Click through the slideshow to read descriptions of each organization and then vote in the poll below.
Voting closes Oct. 1 at midnight.
Note: An individual nonprofit's percentage will increase or decrease based on the number of votes competing organizations receive.
