The 2020 Election is inescapable, which means that it is also looming large in the lives of youth. Elections are a great opportunity to introduce young people to one of the most important and powerful rights we have as Americans, the right to vote.
The 2020 Keystone Conference was in July, but the learning and the engagement continues with the We the Youth 2020 badge on MyFuture! At the site, we have the recordings of the General Sessions and Passport to Manhood and SMART Girls breakouts, as well as three activities to help youth discover how to be an advocate for their passions. In Fact or Fake, youth will learn how to identify credible information. For youth who love art and photography, Photo Advocate will help them learn how to harness that love for civic good. And in Vote to Make a Difference, youth will learn about voter registration and why it is so important. Also be sure to check out the Leadership badge for more.
