A project of YMCA OF GREATER SYRACUSE
Samantha is going to the Conference! THANK YOU to everyone who has generously given!
Samantha, a sophomore at Liverpool High School, is a member of the North Area Family YMCA’s Youth and Government program. Recently, she and other members of her team participated in the state-wide Youth and Government event at the Statehouse. There, they joined about 600 teens from across the state. They identified statewide needs, wrote mock bills, debated their merits and passed mock legislation using proper parliamentary procedures. At the end of the day, Samantha was selected as one of just 21 teens statewide to represent New York on the national level. The Conference on National Affairs will be held in Blue Ridge North Carolina June 29-July 5. Samantha is well-spoken, outspoken, smart and persuasive. She plans a career in law. This conference is the perfect opportunity for her to begin her journey!
To pay for her trip to North Carolnia, Samantha needs to raise $750. Please help her meet her goal by giving today!
