HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE

If you are a student, talk to other students, your teacher or another possible adult sponsor, and describe the project and explain why you want to participate. If you are a teacher or would like to be an adult sponsor contact us.

A citizens group can also form for the purpose of discussing community problems and taking their own proposals to meetings of elected officials, writing to local newspapers and sharing the results of these discussions on local radio and television.

We slant our program to teens, because for twenty years we have been finding ways to let teens know they are capable, valued and respected members of their communities. However the immediate goal is to get Problem Solvers of any age showing what can be done. As an example: a citizens group in Illinois divided the 1988 tax reform proposal into manageable portions which it parceled out to its members. After studying their respective portions, those ordinary citizens reported back to the group. Their efforts were publicized and it mattered to a lot of folks that at least a small group of Americans had read every word in that massive bill. The legislators and their staff admitted that they hadn't.

Some communities may prefer to have a combination of senior and teen members in their Problem Solvers groups. We want to hear from whatever group is willing to accept the challenge and show the rest of us that "it can be done." The more varieties of Problem Solvers, the better! Eventually we could have syndicated radio stations helping listeners across the country become acquainted with the idea that most people, especially the youngest and the oldest generations, are far more capable than they realize and can play a vital role in the welfare of this nation.

If you decide to participate in this activity notify the Foundation at the outset. If you can arrange to have your discussion aired on a local radio or television station, please send us a CD or DVD of the program. If you can't get a local station or newspaper to cooperate, please contact us.
