Who are GenJ’ers? And what do they do? Many homeschooled teens are getting involved in their communities and establishing a reputation for passion, maturity, and sincere involvement. Find out more on today’s Home School Heartbeat, with host Mike Farris.
This week, we’re talking with students from the Generation Joshua program, or as they call it, the GenJ program. One of our students, Sarah from Idaho, joins me today to talk about her involvement in political activities. Sarah, welcome to the program.
Thank you! It’s a great pleasure to be part of this.
What have you been doing with your GenJ program? What kind of activities have you been involved with?
Well, with GenJ, I went to summer camp last year, and I have been really influential as far as, like, recommending people to Generation Joshua. And also, I’m applying to be a camp counselor for this year’s summer camp.
Have you been involved in any campaigns?
Yes! I went to the SAT in Colorado, campaigning for Marilyn Musgrave, that was last October, I think.
And what were you able to do in that congressional race?
We were able to pass out lots of literature, and just really, I think, affect the community in a way that they really weren’t expecting. I think it shook up the community a lot. We were able to be a really good influence. There were so many homeschool students there who were really shining a light, and I think that was the most powerful influence of all.
Sarah, thanks so much for your work in that election and your work for the future of this country. I’m Mike Farris.
