The future of our country is in the hands of the teens in our homes. Does this statement make you cringe? If so, stay tuned! Today on Home School Heartbeat a teen joins Mike Farris to share how she is helping to elect leaders she believes in.
This week, we’re discussing the grassroots efforts of Generation Joshua’s Student Action Teams to get out the vote. Jenaye White, who’s a student from Kentucky, joins me today to talk about her experience on the Student Action Team. Jenaye, welcome to the program.
Thank you for having me!
Jenaye, can you describe an average day as a Generation Joshua campaign volunteer?
Sure! Well, an average day on the SAT starts pretty early in the morning at the campaign office, where our team will start phone banking, precinct walking, literature drops—pretty much anything we can do to inform as many voters as possible. And at our SAT in Tennessee, my team got the opportunity to actually meet with our candidate and talk about the upcoming election with him. So the days are packed full, but the work is a lot of fun, and it’s a great opportunity to connect with other students that share a passion for making the difference.
Working on the Tennessee team also inspired me to volunteer in my own county back home, and taught me that, even though we as students may not be old enough to vote, we can still make a huge difference.
Jenaye, thanks so much for your efforts, and for the efforts of students like you, who are making a tremendous impact on our country. I’m Mike Farris.
