YNPN at the White House, 3/14/12

For the second time, YNPN was invited back to the White House for a tweet-chat with Jon Carson (@joncarson44), Director of Public Engagement at the White House to have a frank conversation about young people and the future of the nonprofit sector.


  1. Leading up to the event, we like to think the entire Twitterverse was talking about nothing else but this. Our friends, chapters, and supporters all seemed eager to join in on the conversation. @americorps and @americorpsalums were also partnering in on this conversation.
  2. There was someone else slightly more important than our gang at the White House that day - Prime Minister David Cameron of Great Britain. Nonetheless, we were treated warmly by our host, Jon Carson.
  3. To kick things off, @joncarson44 checked that there was indeed an eager crowd out there waiting to jump in on the chat.
  4. Almost immediately, questions started pouring in...
  5. We also took the opportunity to share some facts about the nonprofit sector, all while chatting with @joncarson44 about leadership challenges and executive director pay
