AMTP Youth Speak!

In 2012, AMTP youth leaders put together a presentation for the New Hampshire National Educator’s Association’s annual state conference on the effects that poverty has on NH youth. Each teen leader wrote about their personal experiences, and gave voice to their concerns before New Hampshire teachers, with the goal of broadening their understanding and garnering their support.

These teens then hit the road, sharing their stories at a Laconia Better Together Meeting, an AMTP fundraiser, and finally, at the NH State House before the House Education Committee, in support of the passage of HB260.
