People rarely have an opportunity to make a direct impact on the future of the community. This is one of those opportunities. The Virginia High School Leadership Academy was created to train the next generation of activists, school board members, leaders, campaign managers, non-profit managers, and candidates.Participants will learn new skills on how to create an issue advocacy campaign from concept to implementation. One of the truly great components of the training is to get feedback from actual practitioners in our community. This a great training event for any high school student.

As our high school students go back to school in the coming weeks, we would like to make a request. Fairfax County has twenty-six high schools. Every school does not have a young democrats club. If you attend a school without a young democrats club, please consider starting one this year. It is an excellent opportunity for leadership development, future training, and civic engagement with your fellow students. Fairfax Young Democrats is available to assist with your club to help make the high school organization successful. If you are interested in starting a new high school democrats club in your high school or you would like to get connected your club, please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are quickly approaching the upcoming school year and there is a large need in our community. There are children in our community that will need school supplies and backpacks for the upcoming school year. There is a large need for backpacks for middle and high schoolers in our community. Non-profit agencies will receive the supplies and distribute them out to the community. One of the pillars of Fairfax Young Democrats is to be a service-minded organization in our Fairfax County community. Fairfax Young Democrats collected school supplies donations in July. If you would like to donate directly to the organizations, we have provided links below:
