      Vision New America is currently accepting applications for our:
      2009 YOUTH LEADERSHIP AND CIVIC ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM (YLCE)

      Passionate about creating change?
      Want to learn first hand how local, state and federal government operate?
      Committed to advocating for yourself, your family, and your community?

      Vision New America's Youth Leadership and Civic Engagement Programs (Bay
      Area and Capitol) aims to empower high school and college students to
      become community leaders in advocacy, policy, and service. Students are
      placed in governmental and policy related offices in the Bay Area,
      Sacramento, and Washington D.C and also participate in leadership
      trainings, work in teams to develop and implement community service
      projects, and participate in voter registration efforts. YLCE program
      interns successfully completing the program are able to apply for a $1,000
      scholarship.

      The Youth Leadership and Civic Engagement Program aims to help interns:
      1. Gain a better understanding of issues affecting communities
      2. Develop leadership skills to take on community leadership roles
      3. Become more effective advocates for change by collaborating with
      community members and leaders to organize a community service project

      All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply. No prior experience
      necessary. We are looking for passionate individuals who are willing to
      learn about themselves, their communities, and become leaders!
