When I was applying to college this year, a lot of my supplements asked what my favorite extracurricular was. Obviously, everytime I responded with Youth & Government. However, one school asked, “If you could continue one of your current extracurriculars for the rest of your life, what would it be?” This question really had me think. I do so many activities that I love, but again I answered with Youth & Government.
Joining Y&G was the best decision of my life and I wish I could do it forever, but that question got me thinking; Could I even afford to do this for the rest of my life? Could I even afford to do this in college? The answer, as sad as it is, is that I definitely couldn’t. My parents love that I am so passionate about Y&G, but definitely have their concerns about the financial aspect of it. Luckily, we figured out a way for me to participate, but many don’t. That’s why we need FLC.
FLC grants so many amazing opportunities for delegates all over California, but it still has room to grow. So please donate as much as you can towards this cause because the future is in the youth, and it is our duty to lead them in the golden path of democracy.
