White House to launch Young America Series at ASU
The White House will launch its Young America Series at 2:30 p.m., Feb. 27, in the Memorial Union’s Ventana Ballroom on ASU’s Tempe Campus. The forum at ASU is the first in a multi-city series that will bring White House administration and U.S. Department of Education officials to 20 university campuses across the country.
The series of conferences – designed to connect young community, civic, nonprofit and business leaders to discuss issues critical to young Americans – aims to identify solutions to meet the challenges of the 21st century and provide students an opportunity to interact with Obama Administration officials. The conference will feature an innovative open space dialogue, which allows participants to define the agenda and shape the format.
