Potential Creation of a National Youth Council?

August 6, 2010

Could the U.S. be getting close to having a National Youth Council, where young people would authentically work with senior policymakers?

Collective members of Youth Councils around the nation gathered to meet with Christina Tchen, White House Director of Public Engagement to recommend a National Youth Council. The meeting was a step in the right direction in discussing the importance of involving young people in the federal policymaking process. Watch the video to see what unfolded, and find out how you can get involved!
