One of our Austin Corps seniors, Natalie Estrada, will be taking a trip to Washington D.C. to participate in the National League of Cities Congressional City Conference (March 14th - March 16th.) This is a trip for a select group of high school students who participate in the city’s Austin Youth Council (AYC).
Natalie Estrada is an all around all-star Akins Eagle. In addition to Austin Corps, she is the News Editor for the Eagle Eye newspaper, the captain of the Akins Folklorico, a member of the Akins Red Cross Club and the Latinos Unidos club. I am so proud of her and honored to be her teacher.
The NLC Congressional City Conference will be held from March 14th through March 16th. Austin Youth Council students will also be able to visit museums and a college of their choice.
Although Austin Youth Council covers the costs of flights, transportation, hotel and two meals a day. We are asking for your support and help in preparing Natalie for her trip.

A warm winter coat, it can be cold in D.C. in March (Size Small)
Blazer/ suit jacket (size extra small/ small)
A carry-on size suitcase
Reusable travel size containers (shampoo, soap etc)
Gloves and warm socks
Money for extra meals during the day/ while traveling

This sounds like a great opportunity for a deserving student to participate and learn about government and leadership.
