Event Details

The Role of the Youth Leader: 

Participants will help to write and draft policy with representatives to write a comprehensive Youth Policy Framework that will set the youth agenda for the next several years in the presence of national media and national leaders. We believe that the role of the youth leader is not just listening to a panel but actually engaging with them to make their voice heard.


The National Youth Association, a youth-run, student-run organization, is hosting the "American Youth Summit" bringing together top youth leaders in Washington, DC to engage with Obama Administration officials (White House and US Department of State, Energy, Commerce, Labor, and Education), bipartisan Congressional leaders, and and other national policy groups in a two-day summit working towards a "National Young Americans Report".

Top youth leaders from around the country.


The Ronald Reagan Trade Center is scenically located one block from the White House and is walking distance from the Washington Monument. It is located in Federal Triangle and currently houses the U.S. Agency for International Development and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.



Young people played a critical part in getting President Obama and countless elected officials around the country elected. People in Washington are listening and the NYA will be hosting the American Youth Summit as a way to bring leaders young and old to a national discussion on youth issues. As the Obama Administration and Congress begin to work through their policy priorities for the next 2-4 years, the National Youth Association will be convening all relevent policy officials and advocacy leaders into one room for two days to discuss the future of youth activism and the priorities it should set.

Young people will be creating and formulating the youth policy agenda for the next several years in Washington. This summit is an opportunity to make the youth voice heard into a concrete document that will be circulated to Capitol Hill and all our stakeholders.


Our goal is to create a working report of what young Americans want, suggested solutions, as well as a field plan with a coalition of organizations to take the report throughout the country and try to implement as many planks as possible. 

Working Groups: 

The NYA will be convening working groups around the following four issues: Unemployment, Environment, Education, Health.


All money from tickets go towards covering the cost of the venue and financial aid for students traveling from around the country. Not a single cent goes to any of the organizations or partners of the National Youth Association. The National Youth Association is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization.
