How to Get Involved in the Campaign

I have received many messages about getting involved in the Campaign. There are many ways to get involved and all very important. The easiest way to help the Campaign is by following us on Twitter (@gov4youth), liking our Facebook page, reading this blog and sharing these social media outlets with your friends and family. It’s as simple as a click of the button!

For those of you who are really ambitious and eager to help the Campaign, you have a few options. The first option is to apply for our Campus Ambassadors program. As a Campus Ambassador, you will organize group presentations and implement a social media and legislative campaign in your area. The other task we ask of Campus Ambassadors is to mobilize their friends, family, and community members to write their members of Congress to support the creation of a Presidential Youth Council.

The other option is applying to be a part of the Leadership Team. The Leadership Team has many different subcommittees for you to get involved with such as: Communications, New Media, Community Outreach, Leadership Team, Strategy and Government Relations.

I must mention that participation in the campaign does NOT influence appointment to the council.  The President and the Office of Presidential Personnel will decide who is appointed to the council.  We appreciate your help in making the council a reality.

If you want an application for the Campus Ambassadors program or for the Leadership Team, or if you have any further questions about getting involved, feel free to zip me an e-mail at <>

I have been the part of this campaign and helped the team to get the goals of the Youth Council. I was busy in the campaign therefore I got help with essay from an online source. The best thing about this campaign was that everyone was helping each other to promote the Presidential initiative for the Youth Council.
