Wyoming--Opportunity for Young Homeschoolers to Impact State Politics

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

December 30, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

The Home School Legal Defense Association has launched a nationwide
effort to mobilize a new generation of homeschoolers to stand up for
freedom in America. The "Generation Joshua" Project is a bold effort
to pass the torch of liberty to the young people we have been
educating. Just as Moses led the Israelites into Egypt but Joshua
led them into the Promised Land, so one generation of homeschooling
parents must equip a new generation of homeschool students to keep
freedom alive. Wyoming has taken the lead in this effort by
establishing a political action committee for homeschooled teens.

The "Young Patriots" are a group of homeschooled teens and their
families that have united to support candidates who support freedom.
The Young Patriots are organized as a Political Action Committee,
which can endorse or oppose candidates. Homeschoolers are not
millionaires, who can pay for expensive television commercials, but
each dedicated young person who is willing to knock on doors or put
up yard signs can make a big difference in a local legislative race.
By harnessing the energy and enthusiasm of a new generation of
homeschoolers, the Young Patriots can expect to have a significant
impact on the Wyoming legislature.

Young people who want to get involved in this new organization will
need some specialized training. Teen Pact is an organization that
trains young people to be effective citizens. Teen Pact has adopted
a God-centered approach to teaching Christian youth about the
operations of state government during the legislative session. Teen
Pact is offering a one-week training session for Wyoming teenagers
(13 and up) from February 16 through February 20 in Cheyenne. The
cost is $169 per student, but there is a $20 discount for early
registration. People who register by January 26 can attend for only
$149. Applications are available on the Teen Pact website at Cheryl Nichols would be happy to answer any
questions about Teen Pact. Cheryl can be reached at 307-638-0507.

HSLDA salutes Wyoming for seizing the opportunity to advance the
cause of liberty in your state. Homeschoolers in 49 other states
will be watching to see what Wyoming homeschoolers can accomplish!
