Panel: Engaging Generation Now

Speeches Shim

White House Summit on Global Development - July 20, 2016

This session focused on investing in and partnering with young people who will help us solve some of the world's biggest problems. With global youth populations concentrated in the least developed countries in the world, providing young people with the tools they need to succeed-education, leadership skills, entrepreneurial values-is a sustainable development solution. Through U.S. programs and initiatives, such as the Young Leaders Initiatives and Let Girls Learn, we have engaged hundreds of thousands of extraordinary young people dedicated to being changemakers in their communities and countries.
