The State Department and USAID Get It
(Alex Wirth) This weekend I was in New York for a State Department Panel entitled, “Youth Driving Change: Global Youth and Civic Engagement.” The event itself was just as amazing as the story behind it — one that is still developing.
A Step in the Right Direction on Youth Empowerment
FWD the Facts
(Ross Seidman) On Saturday, September 24, 2011, I had the privilege to help organize a panel discussion at the United States Mission to the United Nations in NYC, followed by a presentation on the new USAID FWD the Facts campaign that had just been released a few days prior. The panel consisted of civically engaged youth both domestically and globally and was moderated by Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs Maria Otero. There were well over fifty young people in the audience ranging from college students to professionals.
