In my first year with California YMCA Youth & Government, I am witnessing an incredible group of student delegates learn about civic engagement, our political process, how to think critically about the world around them, how to write a bill, how to find their voice and how to use that voice to help bring about positive change. I am inspired by all of their enthusiasim, their altruistic thinking & behavior even when they are challenged by their own personal lives. Many of our students are in need of financial aid in order to complete a program year. I am proudly raising funds for student scholarships. Let's help graduate students with a deep understanding of the importance of being civically engaged and that they can make a difference.
California YMCA Youth & Government has provided outstanding statewide educational and social experiences to 100,000 middle and high school youth for more than 70 years. Together we can achieve so much more. Every $15 gift makes a difference. Please join me in support for these kids.
