We are a voice for our generation

High School Democrats of Greenville County is a political organization that serves as an entry point to Democratic politics for youth activists across the upstate. We advance the ideals and objectives of the GCDP, engage fellow students to become active, and work to elect Democratic candidates to public office.

As part of the national association – High School Democrats of America – we are part of a vast network of resources and chapters. We aim to provide a powerful and collective voice for politically-active high school students. We are entirely student run and dedicated members from all walks of life have the chance to open new doors through their involvement in projects and events.


Kritika Sethi, President

Elle Joye, Vice President

Harper Uhlemann, Expansion Director

Sam Barnhart, Communications
