DC Youth Summit Kicks Off This Week!

DC_Summit_Logo

We at WTS are abolutely thrilled about our first Transportation YOU DC Youth Summit, the first program of its kind in the transportation industry, coming up this Wednesday, March 28, 2012.

Since the inception of Transportation YOU that launched as a joint initiative of WTS International and the U.S. DOT with the 2010 signing of a memorandum of understanding by US Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, WTS has quickly created a buzz and heightened awareness about the future career opportunities in the U.S.’s multi-modal infrastructure. 

Our 46 U.S.-based chapters have each been playing an integral role in WTS’s commitment to this effort by running their own Transportation YOU programs for girls 13 - 18.  From San Francisco to Denver to New York, Transportation YOU is a source of scholarship, internship, and networking opportunities. We link these young women with professionals in the field and inspire them to learn STEM-related coursework and expose them to career possibilities in fields of the transportation industry not typically pursued by women.

These programs have now culminated in the ultimate experience for some of Transportation YOU’s stand-out participants with the launch of The DC Youth Summit. This is the pinnacle of WTS’s Transportation YOU program, as it brings together participants from across the country, side by side with their mentors, for hands-on projects that solve real-world transportation challenges, meetings with key college representatives and DC V.I.P.s, as well as presentations from successful transportation professionals and workshops on leadership, teamwork, and career planning.

We could not have brought The DC Youth Summit to fruition without the extraordinary support of our corporate partners and program sponsors. Please take a moment to learn about them at the web site, www.TransportationYou.org.

We look forward to welcoming our Transportation YOU mentorship teams from across the country, as well as our roster of stand-out speakers and program hosts on Wednesday. Participating chapters are listed below. See you on March 28, 2012!
