Hey! My name is Miles Stein, I have done one year of Model United Nations and this is my second year in Youth and Government. It may sound pretty cliché, but Y&G has changed my life. As a highschool student in a school with almost 4,000 kids I feel pretty insugnificant. However, when I found Y&G I was given a voice to share my opions, which I had never experienced with other teens. This voice has lead me to being more social, outspoken, and a better public speaker. The program has helped me branch out socially because I have been able to meet diffrent kids around the state who share my intrests and have become long lasting friends. Also, at my school most of my friends are not very in to polotics, the voice the Y&G gives me allows me to share my political opinions in a safe enviornment and learn about various parts of the government. Last but not least, giving a speech to one hundred or more delegates can really change your approach to public speaking. The proverb 'It takes ten thousand hours' really does apply because after ten thousand hours of speaking in front of people I finally feel comfertable. As you can see the Youth and Government program has helped me develoup as an adult and teach me lessons. What the Future Leaders Campaign is all about is allowing all types of teens to expierence this rewarding and amazing program. Hopefully if you give to my page or any other you will allow a delegate to expierence this amazing program.
