The Power of Youth Panel

June 30, 2015:
Young adults throughout the US are volunteering — at all ages — and at such a level that as a group, they are now known for their generosity of spirit and dedication to social progress. How can we help build an infrastructure to continue to grow that momentum? What can we do to engage more youth in an active commitment to giving back to their country? How can we keep them engaged once they have demonstrated an interest in serving their communities? Activist leaders of the global movement, We Day, and the national service initiative, The Franklin Project, share their plans.
