to attend our first annual summit: "Youth and Democracy in the Americas Summit – Challenges Facing new generations." The summit offers young leaders of the Americas the opportunity to present the main challenges facing their nation to diplomats, politicians, and government officials. They will also share their goals and experiences working to overcome these challenges and will gain knowledge on how to strengthen democracy in their countries.

The three-day summit will take place on October 16-18, 2019, during the framework of Hispanic Heritage Month and will be held at the House of Representatives, the U.S Senate, and the Organization of American States.
