      Young Candidates' Network

      To link all candidates (aged 30 and under) from all parties and for
      all levels of office, creating more awareness and support for their
      campaigns, the issues they represent and for youth participation at

      A collaboration of all-partisan youth civic engagement and education
      organizations and leaders.

      The Young Candidates' Network (YCN) is formed with the purpose of
      linking all candidates from all parties and for all levels of office
      that are age 30 and under into one on-line network. The YCN is an

      active and make a difference. The message of hope and opportunity
      will be coupled with the message of warning: if young leaders do not
      link arms and begin the process of tackling the American political
      system, the young generation, Generation Y, will suffer the
      consequences of a political system that is more interested in baby-
      boom and seniors issues than in the future life of the nation's
