Happy Constitution Day!  Today, September 17, 2017, marks the 230th anniversary of the end of the Constitutional Convention and signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787.  Thirty-nine delegates from twelve states signed this document that established the U.S. system of government as we know it. Signers included George Washington and James Madison of Virginia, Alexander Hamilton of New York, and Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania.  By its creation of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches, the Constitution built the foundation that supports students in the Texas YG program.  They study the government’s workings and serve as elected officials, judges, attorneys, lobbyists, and legislators.  We now ask you to support our students through our Constitution Day Fundraiser.  Please donate here to contribute to our valuable Texas YG program.  Your gift will help our civics education and leadership training reach over 2,000 middle and high school students throughout Texas.  Additionally, a portion of contributions will be set aside to support our 200+ students in the Houston area affected by Hurricane Harvey who may need financial assistance to attend the State Conferences in January and February.  Thank you so much for your generosity!  As a special treat, watch the video below to hear our Youth Governor Sharif Long’s thoughts on what the Constitution means to him.
