Does your teenager want to make a difference in our country? A great place to start is with a few like-minded friends—and a Generation Joshua club! Learn more, today on Home School Heartbeat with host Mike Farris.
This week, our guest is Will Estrada, who is the director of HSLDA's Generation Joshua program. Will, welcome to the program!
Mike, it’s great to be here!
Generation Joshua is a program designed to educate and encourage young people to engage in civic action, and one of the fundamental programs is the local GenJ club. Will, can you share a story about what one or two of your local GenJ clubs have accomplished to impact their community?
Mike, our GenJ clubs provide an incredible opportunity for energetic young people to learn how to make a difference in their local communities as a group. A few years ago the city of Greeley, Colorado, was hit by a freak tornado. A Generation Joshua club that meets in Greeley immediately stepped in to help with the clean up and recovery process. Local media was so impressed that Christian homeschool students were passionate not only about politics but about helping people in need.
Other clubs have gotten involved in local elections, featured prominent speakers, and engaged in other activities to help train up future citizens and leaders.
Will, thanks so much! These local GenJ clubs are a great opportunity for young people to learn about our nation's history and start making a difference in the present. I’m Mike Farris.
