Stephen Riorden, student at Peru Parkside Jr High, attended and participated in the Congressional Youth Leadership Council.
Stephen is an impressive young man. He talked with us about his experience with CYLC and it seemed invaluable. His efforts to raise money for the trip and experience were well worth it! Stephen shared his daily agenda with our group and it included long days full of challenging activity and little sleep in between. Stephen learned a great deal and heard some fantastic, well-known speakers during his trip. It was very meaningful to him. He will continue to work with others and encourage other young people to become involved.
