Talking To Youth about MSD (NBC News)

In June 2016, the CSC asked our partners at Tomorrow's Rainbow to help share information on how to talk to children about horrific events like the one that had just happened at The Pulse, in Orlando. Sadly, this information is most relevant once again, following the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14.

The Faces of CSC

The greatest tool you can give a child is the ability to persuade and speak with confidence. Being that my YIG experience positively impacted my emotional literacy skills, I would like to pass these on to those who are less fortunate.
"This program has touched me and made a difference in my life."
"I will be the first to say, Youth in Government should be a part of every teenager's life, because I know without it I wouldn't be the person I am."
