 On Tuesday, November 18th through Thursday, November 20th, Mobilize.org and the Peter G. Peterson Foundation will convene today's most prominent millennial voices — thought leaders from the generation between ages 18 and 34 — for a National Youth Summit in Chicago, IL.

 

Join PGPF's President and CEO Dave Walker and more than 150 Millennials by tuning into a live webcast of the Summit — starting with Dave's welcome keynote speech on November 18th at 9:15 a.m.

The three day Youth Summit, entitled Democracy 2.0: Exploring the Millennial Generation's ROI, standing for "return on investment," will focus on (1) exploring the barriers preventing today's younger generation from achieving financial health and (2) developing the action plans necessary to begin setting an agenda for youth-led economic reform in the United States.
