Roy is trying to raise funds so that he may attend the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF): National Security – Diplomacy, Intelligence & Defense. This is a six-day Envision program that prepares high school students for careers in defense, intelligence and the diplomatic corps. He was nominated for this program based on his past excellence in academics and in his leadership abilities.
He maintains a 3.4 GPA, is in Honors courses, and is a Life Scout, Senior Patrol Leader, and a Brotherhood member in the Order of the Arrow with Boy Scouts of America. He has completed National Youth Leadership Training and has also been a missionary the past two years; helping to repair church spaces in inner-city Michigan and in New Orleans. He has done volunteer work with the homeless and has also served as a camp counselor for the Cub Scouts. He has an innate love for History and Social Studies, and has a career goal of becoming an enlisted Officer in the United States Army.
At NYLF, Roy will join a select group of highly motivated students who are interested in the many disciplines that help keep the country – and its citizens – safe. He will also have the opportunity to learn how the United States plans for peace and prepares for crisis, and get an up-close look at the national security infrastructure of the United States through site experiences, a career fair, a real-world crisis simulation and interactions with nationally recognized speakers.
Through this program, he will enhance his leadership profile and prepare to make decisions about his leadership career in America’s national security and defense. Please help him out by donating what you can! The deadline for his enrollment is October 31st, 2014. Thank you in advance for your support!
