The AOL team is always looking for new ways to spotlight game-changing nonprofits.

Leading up to #GivingTuesday, we want to do our part to help organizations champion their efforts. AOL.com will feature five organizations per week during the month of November, and allow visitors to vote on the organization they want featured on the homepage via a pro bono advertising space, driving awareness and engagement to millions of daily visitors.

The organization with the most votes each week will appear on AOL.com for a final poll in late November; the final organization with the most votes will be promoted again on AOL.com, this time on #GivingTuesday. We're excited to provide our support and help champion our nonprofit partners' messages!

Vote to raise awareness for the nonprofit that resonates the most with you. It just takes one click.

Step Up believes all girls should have the opportunity to fulfill their potential. The nonprofit inspires women to inspire teen girls from under-resourced communities through after-school and weekend mentorship programs. During the 2014-15 school year, 100 percent of Step Up girls were mentored by at least one woman in Step Up's network. Students with different sources of support and information (like a mentor!) are more likely to stay in school and make better decisions. Step Up is on a mission to empower girls to be confident, college-bound, career-focused and ready to join the next generation of professional women.

Each year, 6 to 8 million dogs and cats will enter shelters and rescue groups, and only half will be adopted. Many people mistakenly think that shelter pets are damaged goods and that they did something wrong to end up in a shelter. The Shelter Pet Project, a collaborative effort with the Humane Society of the United States, Maddie's Fund® and the Ad Council, aims to dispel those myths and encourage prospective pet owners to make shelters and rescue groups their first choice and preferred way for acquiring companion animals.
