Youth and Government has given me some of the most valuable experiences of my life. It has given me a platform to express my views and to refine my ideas. It has introduced me to a whole slew of new friends. And it has given me an invaluable skill: the ability to speak in public.
I feel a deep passion for this program, and I know all my friends in it feel the same way. Unforetunately, it is fairly expensive, leaving many potential delegates unable to join. They can't to share in this life-changing experience just because of finance. This should not be the case. Everyone who has a passion for politics should be able to join; that's why I'm taking part in this fundraising campaign!
I hope to raise $350 to help provide scholarships for my fellow delegates in Youth and Government, so money doesn't get in the way of passion. Please donate to give other less fortunate teenagers the opportunity to better themselves and change the world.
