In conjunction with the Millennium Momentum Foundation and the U.S. Department of Education, The White House Young America Series are regional conferences held across the country this spring. They are designed to connect Obama Administration officials with young community, civic, non-profit and business leaders to discuss issues critical to young Americans and identify solutions to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
The goals for this conference are:
· Relationship Building—The conference will establish a space where young leaders can meaningfully engage and interact with officials from the Obama Administration on diverse policy areas that affect their community.
· Sharing Ideas— Participants will raise policy and programmatic areas of importance. Also, participants will identify local success stories and practices in policy areas that could benefit other communities across the country.
· Working Together—The conference will allow participants to connect with each other and Obama Administration officials to share tools and community solutions that can be leveraged to address larger issues. Participants and Administration officials will work together to identify and develop opportunities for collaboration between the Administration and other leaders from across their community and across the country.
· Obama Administration 101— The conference will ensure that participants gain a deeper understanding of the Administration’s work, learn how they can connect with the Federal Government at the local level, and plan for the work yet to be done.
Target Audience: Young Americans, ages 18-35, who are already doing great work around issues like education, anti-violence, and civic engagement. Please feel free to disseminate to your colleagues and your networks and be sure to register today!
