    Ban Double Standards in Age Requirements for Graduates Under 18

     
    I have started a petition to try and change the age requirement set for entry level positions and even volunteer work. I graduated high school at only 16 years old, and I am currently finishing up second semester in college. Many jobs will not even allow me to begin to apply for the position, and volunteer opportunities that relate directly to my major have told me to contact them in a few years when I am 19 years old. These are the same people that will allow high school dropouts over 18 to apply, and will even consider them, but will not even give me a chance despite how hard I've worked.

    Please sign the petition and pass it on. All help is greatly appreciated, as every signature helps!

    Kind Regards,
    Sabrina Rivera
