To stereotype and judge before taking the time to see for yourself, maybe what I and others could offer and bring to the table with ideas could just as well be the things such committees are looking for?
Ever heard sometimes you find what you're looking for in the most unlikely places?
I'm definitely not saying that nothing is brought to the table, and I'd probably align my own opinions along with them, I'm just saying when we start to consider "youths" and what "youths" find appealing - the kind of youths that run for committees generally have very different opinions to the majority of their peers. I think many youth committees can have excellent input into ideas - but I just feel they can miss the mark when they're advising on initiatives for others in their age group.
ps. I'd hardly say I'm highly regarded in the business world.
