For the second time, YNPN was invited back to the White House for a tweet-chat with Jon Carson (@joncarson44), Director of Public Engagement at the White House to have a frank conversation about young people and the future of the nonprofit sector.
For several months now YNPNdc has been working with the White House Office of Public Engagement to create a dialogue between White House leaders and young nonprofit professionals. This past week YNPNdc Board Chair Carlyn Madden and YNPNdc Leadership Council member Zach Dulli were included in a panel of young leaders asked to discuss what issues they would like to see included in tonights State of the Union address. Part of what came out of that meeting was a request for the White House to provide more outreach and follow up to young professionals.
YNPNdc will be tweeting live from the White House tonight, during and after the President's speech. The White House has asked us to encourage all YNPN chapters across the country to participate in this event as well. During the speech you can engage with YNPNdc through their Twitter account @YNPNdc and with the White House via @WhiteHouse & @JonCarson44. Immediately following the speech, pose your questions to a live panel of White House senior advisers by using the hashtag #SOTU. Be sure to include @ynpndc in your message. You can also post questions via the White House’s Facebook page. For more information or to view an enhanced version of the State of the Union address and the live streamed follow up Q&A please visit WhiteHouse.gov
The White House is excited about the work YNPN is doing and this is a great opportunity for chapters across the country to engage on a national stage. We encourage everyone to participate in tonight's event.
