This week was International Youth Day, and to honor that, we’re highlighting the work of our high school Student Ambassadors. Most of them aren’t yet old enough to vote but work hard to engage elected officials and candidates on issues impacting kids.
This school year, more than 125 passionate high school and college students across 13 states worked diligently to engage their classmates, communities, candidates running for office and elected officials around making change for kids.
