Greetings Community Partners,
YEF is hosting its 7th annual Youth Advocacy Day on March 17th 2016. Youth Advocacy Day (YAD) is an opportunity for San Francisco youth to have an open dialogue with their elected officials about issues that directly affect their communities.
YAD brings over 200 high school students into City Hall to participate in hands-on civic engagement. Youth speak directly to their elected city officials through panel discussions and workshops. Citywide youth activism and advocacy are showcased during YAD through presentations and a Community Resource Fair.
Below are some ways you can join in the day!
If you’re interested in bringing a group of students to YAD please register here.
If you’d like your organization to table at our Community Resource Fair please click here.
If you’d like to volunteer during the day sign up here.
We are currently reaching out to find SF youth ages 14-19 interested in paid
leadership positions with the Vote16 Youth Empowerment Academy who
want to help make SF the first major US city to lower its voting age to 16 for
municipal elections! We are especially trying to recruit young people to apply
by January 29th in time to participate in our skill-building retreat February 6-7.
The application is attached and available online here.
Also, if youth in your program are interested in receiving a youth-led
presentation on the Vote16 effort and considering coming out as a group
to engage in some of the Spring advocacy activities we have planned,
we would love to hear from you!
Thanks very much for helping us to get the word out!
