COMMENTS FROM 2013 EVALUATIONS

“What did you learn from Participating in Youth in Government ?”

 

“I learned that I can make a difference even though a lot of us think our vote, our opinions, are insignificant in the grand scheme of things, Maine YIG taught me it does matter so you do need to stand up and make people hear your opinion.”

 

“To respect other peoples opinions”

 

“I learned that even though my point or opinion may be strong, they can make a difference.  I found I loved to debate, and the government process”.

 

“Leadership, skills, gain of confidence, critical thinking skills, and met some brilliant people”

 

“I’m not a bad public speaker”

 

“ How to stand up and speak up for what I think”

 

“ I learned how to interview people and write articles under deadline”

 

“Opinions can be changed”

 

“I learned exactly how the process works, I didn’t realize how difficult that our officials face I have more respect for them than before”

 

“I learned that the youth in my community truly care about our economy and how world runs”

 

“ I learned how to further my leadership skills, and how to voice my opinions, this showed me that you need courage and if you stand up you will be recognized.”
