Youth Program Justification Letter


Dear <Decision-maker>,

I would like to request funding to attend the City Summit, November 7- 10, 2018 in Los Angeles, California as a Youth Delegate.  This year’s conference is expected to draw more than 4,000 local elected officials, municipal staff and local government partners to explore policy issues that affect local governments. All conference events are open to Youth Delegates.

NLC is a bipartisan organization dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. Throughout the year, NLC advocates for cities and towns in Washington, D.C. through full-time lobbying and grassroots campaigns. The conference will include sessions and learning opportunities where I can strengthen the youth council, advocate for our city’s concerns and improve my leadership skills.

The conference fee for Youth Delegates (and Adult Allies) is $170.00. Here is the breakdown of anticipated additional conference costs:
Roundtrip Airfare: <$xxxx>
Transportation: <$xxxx>
Hotel: <$xxxx>
Meals: <$xxxx>
Conference Fee: <$170.00>

The total costs associated with attending this conference are: <$xxxx>.

With such a rich offering of educational content and the chance to share my insights with youth and elected representatives from cities across the country, <Your city name here> will benefit from my attendance at City Summit.

If there’s any further information I can provide to support my request, please do not hesitate to ask.
