At DoSomething.org, we love young people. They are creative, active, wired... and frustrated that our world is so messed up. DoSomething.org harnesses that awesome energy and unleashes it on causes young people care about. We focus on issues from education, the environment, poverty, health, and many more. We believe in the impact young people can have on their world, because we see it happen every day. This session will explore how to engage youth in education reform through building cause campaigns, measuring impact, how to tell your story, recruiting volunteers, and building partnerships.
