But, we didn’t want to do a simple press conference or yet another cocktail party.
The team decided to instead gather a group of experts who are on the front lines fighting to help solve the crisis of global youth unemployment.
By discussing the issue openly from several different angles we knew that the audience would not only learn about the issue, but also why we created GO in the first place.
We knew not everyone could attend in person, so now you can watch an archive of the conversation.
On the panel was:
- Jennifer Kushell, YSN
- Chris Arnold, World Merit
- Sabeen Malik, U.S. Department of State
- Jon Clifton, Gallup
I also want to share a few tweets from attendees so that you could get a feel for some of what was discussed.
Discussing how you define work and a "good job" at #ysnGO. We don't need a body in a seat but people that come alive through their work.

The global opportunity market needs more than the willing, it needs talented pros to fill jobs. #ysnGO
