MILWAUKEE -- At least 41 people headed to the presidential inauguration will have not voted in the election - because they're too young.
?
Teens from the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee are on their way to Washington D.C. to see Donald Trump sworn in as our next President of the United States.
?
Parents like Deavon Collins hope their teenager will carry back memories that will last a lifetime.

"From the lens of a 15-year-old African-American girl I think it's going to be a great experience," said Deavon Collins, mother.
?
"The protests will be really interesting to see and hear about," said D'Naya Collins, 15 years old.
?
She and her peers will also dress up in our nation's capital Thursday for a special gala for teens across the country who are coming to see the inauguration.
?
This trip was paid for entirely by a donation made by former Senator Herb Kohl. They plan to return to Milwaukee on Sunday.
