White House Young America Series

In conjunction with the Millennium Momentum Foundation and the U.S. Department of Education, The White House Young America Series are regional series 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 series will feature an innovative open space dialogue which allows you to work together with other participants to define the agenda and shape the format. 

The goals for this series are:

  • Relationship Building—The series 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 series 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 series 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.
