Support for the establishment of a Presidential Youth Council at USA
Jan 21, 2015
Dear students and youth,
Support for a strong Presidential Youth Council at USA so that the voice of youth can be heard in government in policy making and positive youth development.
The Campaign for a Presidential Youth Council is a bi-partisan, youth-led initiative, to establish a Presidential Youth Council, comprised of young Americans ages 16-24, to advise the President on the perspectives of youth, offer suggestions on the design and implementation of youth policies, and to create shared recommendations on issues that will affect the long-term future of our country.
The Presidential Youth Council would aim to accomplish three things.
1. It would advise the president on the perspectives of the 104 million young Americans under the age of 24.
2. The youth council members will create shared recommendations on issues that affect the long-term future of our country, whether it be the deficit or the environment.
3. Finally, the Presidential Youth Council will make government more efficient, effective, and innovative by bringing young people's feedback to federally-funded programs -- specifically those that serve youth.
