The annual Virgina Young Democrats Convention is scheduled for March 17th-19th on the campus of James Madison University in Harrisonburg. The purpose of our annual meeting is to conduct official VAYD business and to develop new skills with young democrats from around the Commonwealth to bring back to our communities. The high school students of Fairfax County have been working hard this year on starting new clubs and being amazing volunteers on our local campaigns. We are collecting donations for students in need that would like to attend the conference. The donation would cover convention registration and transportation costs. If you are looking to help out a student in need, please consider sponsoring a high school student. You can provide a simple donation by clicking HERE.
