President Obama Meets with Student Delegates from the Senate Youth Program

Continuing a tradition that goes all the way back to 1962 when President Kennedy welcomed young people to the White House, President Obama greeted student delegates from the US Senate Youth Program in the East Room on Wednesday.

The President talked about the importance of leadership, and his belief in how young people can and do change the world for the better. He took a couple of questions from students who asked about the President’s experiences thus far, his vision for the country over the next several decades, and what he enjoys most about his job.
