The inaugural Nexus USA Youth Summit convened December 1-3, 2014 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, bringing together young philanthropists, impact investors, and allies – including family business members, successful entrepreneurs and inspiring social change leaders. They discussed the challenges facing our country today, innovative solutions to them, and policy as an avenue for social change.
Connecting the financial, intellectual, creative, political and social capital of our generation in an action-oriented, solutions-focused and safe space, the Nexus USA Youth Summit aimed to inspire learning and collaboration between a uniquely powerful network of peers.
A varied and interactive program of panels, workshops and social activities explored philanthropy, impact investing and social entrepreneurship as well as the challenges of wealth stewardship, family dynamics, strategies for investing and attracting investment, political transformation, and more. Sessions covered a range of social and environmental issues.
The event was organized by Nexus in partnership with the Millennial Action Project, the Common Ground Donor Network, and Children Uniting Nations to form the 2014 Congressional Summit on Next Generation Leadership.
The Summit opened at 1:00 PM on December 1st and ended at 1:00 PM on December 3rd.
