Protecting the environment is a major challenge we face as a nation. Public transportation is a part of the solution, and the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) recognizes the importance of engaging future generations in this important cause.
This June, APTA will host its second youth summit—Generation Green on Board: A Youth Summit To Advance Public Transportation. Students from across the country who will be high school juniors and seniors in the 2011 -2012 school year will come together June 26-30 in Washington, DC to learn how public transportation helps build vibrant communities and improves the environment.
This is an all expenses paid opportunity for young people to travel to the nation’s capital, meet lawmakers, leaders, and industry professionals while learning about a topic that will impact their future and the future of their community.
The youth summit promises to be an educational and memorable experience. More information is available on our website, www.apta.com/youthsummit.
Applications are due April 15, 2011—space is limited.
