Raised by 39 people in 23 months
My name is Tavaris Johnson and I am a sophomore at Norcross High School. I have been selected to attend the National Student Leadership Conference (NSLC) on engineering at Yale University. This prestigious program selects outstanding high school students from around the world to participate based on academic excellence, extracurricular involvement, and have demonstrated leadership potential. It is an honor to be to attend the NSLC, and I am extremely excited about this opportunity. I am writing to request your financial support, which will enable me to attend the Conference.

At the NSLC, I will have the opportunity to participate in leadership development workshops where I will develop skills including effective communication, public speaking, and conflict resolution. In addition, I will participate in lectures and workshops that will give me a better understanding of engineering and will prepare me for college. I will attend briefings and participate in forum discussions led by National and World leaders in my chosen field. In recent years, NSLC students have met with Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan; Supreme Court Justices Anthony Kennedy and retired Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and David Souter; as well as many Senators, Representatives, and Ambassadors.

The cost for me to attend the conference will be $2,995. This includes the program, room and board, course materials, program activities, travel to the conference and money for other incidental expenses.

Your financial support in any amount will make a big difference in helping me attend the NSLC. Please visit my fundraising page [page link] to learn about me, my goals, fundraising progress, and to donate. To learn more about the NSLC please visit www.nslcleaders.org.

I have attached additional information about. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the number listed above, or you can call NSLC directly at (800) 994 - 6752.

I will contact you in a few days to discuss my request. I welcome any suggestions/feedback that will help me in attaining my goal. Again, your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Yours truly,

Tavaris Johnson
