Building on the success of the Letters to the Next President initiative in 2008, version 2.0 (L2P 2.0) continues to leverage the excitement of a national election to power civic learning for a new generation of teachers, mentors, and youth. Join us to hear from youth and educators about the power of participating in the previous iteration of L2P while learning more about the growing set of opportunities and resources available to educators and mentors in support of youth voice and engagement in the lead up to the 2016 Presidential Election.
