“I was surprised by the teenage leadership at the rally. The rally was filled with teen speakers and protestors. I thought it was awesome that so many teens gathered together and made a successful rally. I hope others attend the future youth jobs rally because this issue should not just be a teenage fight. jobs are important. Being financially stable is important so when teenagers are being under-funded that should not be an issue taken lightly. It impacts everyone.
Sarah Recounts the Annual Rally!
The rally was inspiring because youth jobs matter and to have an entire rally with people who also support youth jobs and youth jobs funding was exciting. For me after the rally I asked what’s next? What else can I do to help youth jobs funding increase?”
