I love the (YEO) Network and what it stands for. It’s a network for and by young electeds. The network provides for a safe place to express thoughts, ideas, frustrations, and to gain insight from fellow members in your shoes.

State Senator Angie Buhl O'Donnell, Sioux Falls, SD
It is so important for young people to continue to be involved in the shaping of our communities. We have so much to gain, and we have so much to lose when we do not have a seat at the table.
County Councilmember Craig Rice, MD
