New Mexicans age 18 to 35. Have your voice heard. Attend the White House Young America Series: Live from Santa Fe Community College (SFCC) on June 4 th, 2012 from 5:00PM to 8:30PM at SFCC’s Jemez Rooms – 6401 Richards Rd., Santa Fe, NM.
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 some of the Nation’s most innovative and inspiring young 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.
The forum in Santa Fe is one of a multi-city series designed to bridge President Obama’s vision with the needs of young people by connecting them with the local and national resources and networks they need to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
The event is free of charge, but pre-event registration is required as space is limited. RSVP by 5/30/12 to YoungAmericaSeries@ed.gov providing first and last name, with “White House at SFCC” in the subject line.
