Dear [NAME OF TEACHER OR EMPLOYER],
Please excuse [YOUR NAME] from school on March 30th. [YOUR NAME] is attending the ReEnergize Texas Summit, the largest ever Texas Youth Climate Summit involving hundreds of youth from across the state! This conference will provide great training seminars for students and youth. [YOUR NAME] and other young people will learn from the nation’s leading scientists, advocates, and organizers about subjects such as how to solve global warming, how to organize powerful education events, and how to make their voices heard and lobby politicians. This is also a great opportunity for [YOUR NAME] to network and share ideas with other students and young people, and make plans to return to [his/her] community and make a difference!
If you have any other questions or comments, please contact any of the following individuals:
