Quotes from 2015 Program Evaluations
What I learned at YIG in ME 2015.........
"It's ok to share your opinions and what you believe"
"Our voices and opinions are not contained to the State Huose, and we can do so much"
"Speaking in public isn't as bad as I thought"
"I learned how government works and I also learned that even though you fight for something, other people may still not change"
"That political science might be right for me"
"How to find my voice and opinion on contorversial topics"
" I learned to speak for myself, as I am typically she"
"Talking to others, making new friends, and voicing my opinion"
