You have been on my non profit journey with me, sometimes the entire step of the way, or joined during a particular season. Some knew me when I worked for PUC, raising money for scholarships. Others, when I worked at the women's transitional rehab residential program or United Way. No matter when you became part of my life, you will know, for me, making a difference with the work I do is what drives me, every day. It is my passion.
I now have the opportunity to raise scholarship money for an outstanding organization-- California YMCA Youth & Government.
California YMCA Youth & Government has provided outstanding statewide educational and social experiences for close to 100,000 middle and high school youth for more than 70 years. Building values-based leadership and civic engagement in California’s youth is important to me. Now more than ever. Students in the program learn how to debate the issue, not the person. They are given the opportunity to model California's government and even elect a Youth Governor. Seeing nearly 4,000 students in one room, caring about the direction of our State and Country is so inspiring, especially in today's political climate. They give me hope.
So I'm fundraising again.
Every gift makes a difference. Everyone has a role to play. Please join me and give today.
