Today is #GivingTuesday and there are a couple of different ways that you can support your favorite civics education program! You can always donate to our program here and support one of more than 2,000 students that will attend our State Conference next month. But we know money can be tight this time of year. You just survived Black Friday and Cyber Monday and if you are like my family, you have five different birthdays coming up all in the next three weeks. It is the season of giving but we know donating money can be difficult so this year, we ask that you donate your time.

Our State Conference will take place in various places around Austin, Texas on January 24-25. It is a wonderful opportunity for all of Texas Youth and Government to gather in one space and witness what the delegates have been practicing and working on in their clubs. However, we cannot put on this event for our students without your help. We need volunteers to serve as evaluators and help our delegates have the best possible State Conference experience. We hope this #GivingTuesday you will consider giving us your time and volunteering with us. You can visit our volunteer page to learn more about the different volunteer opportunities. Also, please follow this link to sign up. We look forward to seeing you next month!
