What do you do with that time span between Generation Joshua membership and eligibility for office? Generation Joshua is starting a new program to answer that question! Learn more on today’s Home School Heartbeat, with host Mike Farris and GenJ director Will Estrada.
Will, I want to talk with you today about a new opportunity for those who are past the age of regular eligibility in Generation Joshua but they still want to be involved. Tell us about this new program, who is eligible, and what do they get to do?
Mike, our vision with Generation Joshua is to provide a forum for young people to become the leaders of this nation. We are launching an exciting new leadership program aimed young adults who still want to be involved in Generation Joshua. We have a rigorous screening and application process as we select young men and women who will help with Generation Joshua’s major activities, such as our iGovern summer leadership camps and our student action teams in November. This program is designed to mentor young people who have aged out of GenJ because they are no longer between the ages of 11 and 19 and to provide leadership opportunities to these young people by having them work under our GenJ staff. GenJ's new program for these college-aged students will offer an opportunity for young people to intern with GenJ and to gain valuable political and leadership experience.
Will, thanks so very much for joining me this week. Generation Joshua has some tremendous educational opportunities for young people who really want to make a difference in America. I’m Mike Farris.
