How to Make Change: Open for Questions – Youth and International Development
Poverty affects young people here in America, and in developing countries around the world. Political instability, and conflict pose threats to our national security. The global economy can provide opportunities for young Americans to earn a living while advancing development objectives. The United States has a long history of extending a helping hand to those struggling to make a better life, recover from a disaster or striving to live in a free and democratic country.
How are young people changing the game in alleviating poverty and improving the health and well-being of people around the world?
Join us for an interactive chat with Young Americans and U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Raj Shah moderated by me. on July 7, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. EDT.
