I hope you will take a look at this recent article about my work within the Republican party and with the Young Dream Changers featured this week at Opportunity Lives.

Chris Carmona Opportunity Lives 2015

Excerpt of article:

Carmona calls on Young Republicans in particular who one day aspire to run for office. “Compelling causes is what we live about,” he said. “It’s not enough that we want to win, but to be worthy of winning. Leadership is when you embody the community you want to represent. Are you embodying the ideals of the people around you? Do you have skin in the game? Do you invest of your time? Are you becoming worthy of winning, not just for elections, but winning the hearts and minds of the people you promised to represent and bring to a brighter future to?”

“It doesn’t matter if you are a candidate or a block walker,” Carmona explained. “You are selling a brand, and it is upheld by servant leadership.”

The Young Dream Changers is just one example of an organization having a great and good impact on its community. Since the program began, many of the kids have completely cut ties with gang culture. In fact, the program has had to add more qualifiers for kids to stay involved or join. Now students need to maintain past commitments and add more community service so they can stay in the program.

Carmona encourages others to get involved in programs like the Young Dream Changers. “The takeaway for Republicans young or old: get involved, stay involved, to protect our communities and make sure we are again servant leaders,” he said.
