The White House: Open for Questions – Youth and International Development

Much has been made of the web savviness of the Obama campaign and administration. The campaign developed and leveraged an online community with my.bo, President Obama gives his weekly address via YouTube.com, and the White House is open for questions with American citizens on the web. To join in these two-way, interactive conversations, tune in tomorrow for a special live discussion regarding poverty, here and abroad, with U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Administrator, Raj Shah, and Kalpen Modi (of Harold and Kumar fame) from the White House Office of Public Engagement. Registration details below and here.

How to Make Change: Open for Questions – Youth and International Development

Join U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Raj Shah and Kalpen Modi from the White House Office of Public Engagement on July 7, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. EDT for a special live discussion with young Americans about international development.

Poverty affects young people here in America and around the world. The United States has a long history of extending a helping hand to those people overseas struggling to make a better life, recover from a disaster or striving to live in a free and democratic country.

Use the form below to tell us:

  • How are young people changing the game when it comes to poverty in the United States and around the world?

  • What do you think about the role of USAID and what should the Obama Administration be doing to tackle challenges related to global poverty and international development?

And be sure to tune in to WhiteHouse.gov/live on July 7 at 1:30 p.m. EDT to join the discussion.
