Sponsoring Mateo for Leadership DC

Hi my name is Mateo and I am a 7th grader at Hogan Middle School and have been nominated to represent my school and community at the Junior National Young Leadership Conference in Washington DC this coming summer 2018.

By attending the Junior National Young Leadership Conference, I will join other motivated students from around the country for an experiential leadership program.

The Junior National Young Leaders Conference is a six-day Envision program,  in Washington, DC which will serve as a living classroom for students like me to develop important leadership skills while having the educational experience of a lifetime.   

I have enclosed a photo of our itinerary for your review. As you can see, this will be a powerful experience, enabling me to interact with respected professionals in various fields while building relationships with students who will be my future colleagues.

Imagine if you had been given this opportunity for a life-changing experience when you were in school and were unable to participate for lack of funds. That is why I am writing to you today and reaching out.

My participation in the program depends on whether I can raise $4,000.00  in sponsorship's. (The program tuition is $2,000.00 and my travel to the program will be $2,000.00.) I am investing every dollar I can of my own money to make sure I don’t miss out on this unique experience.

Your support for my sponsorship request would be greatly appreciated. Anything would help.

Thank you,
