Participating in Model UN has transformed me from a shy freshman to an outspoken rising junior. After becoming interested in politics, I began going to political events. Unfortunately, these events are overwhelming for young attendees who feel out of place. I realized that my classmates barely knew who their representatives were and were disengaged in their community. Youth for Politics was born. YFP engages young people by providing access to resources, hosting networking events for young people and local representatives, and traveling to schools to present ways to get active in society.
Hi Kim! Thank you so much for your support! I'm glad that you believe that this project takes on a new angle. Civic activists are important but new angles must be taken to achieve our goals. Thanks a million!
