Young leaders at Youth Will are fighting for a San Diego where every young person has everything we need to be happy, healthy, and prepared to reach our potential.
For far too long youth voices have been ignored in the budget process. As a result, we only receive 10% of the budget despite making up 20% of the County’s population. Because of this, Youth Will is partnering with Supervisor Nathan Fletcher’s office to host the first ever Youth Budget Forum.
We need to tell our elected representatives what matters to us, be it funding for youth mental health, improved transportation, or other priorities that San Diego County has not taken leadership on. By coming together as one youth community, we can make our voices heard collectively and advocate for the issues that impact us.
Click here to join us on May 18th, 2-4 PM, at the Laborers International Union Hall in order to have a frank conversation with Supervisor Nathan Fletcher’s office about what we need from the County Budget.
