If You Don't See The Change, Be The Change!

This past Saturday youth who attended this year's, "Be The Change" youth convergence held a follow-up meeting to discuss the direction of their campaign create awareness around the lack of accessibility to the k-12 and public higher education system for Georgia youth.

I personally would have been excited if this Year's youth convergence inspired 8-10 young people to get active and stay involved.

We ended up having 23 youth(13-18 years old) come out to a campaign strategy session on a hot summer Saturday! They not only came, they brought fresh ideas, and new energy. The "Be the Change Crew", is already working on establishing multiple high school clubs, t-shirt designs, open mic nights, and concerts! Pretty ambitious for our first follow-up meeting.

After our meeting we had a pool party with pizza! Tons of fun!

If you're 13-19 years old interested in plugging into the "Be the Change Crew" contact Dell McLean at:
