Transportation YOU Washington DC Summit 2016 Application Deadline

All Day Event

Applications are now available for mentors and mentees for this year’s Transportation YOU D.C. Summit.

As part of the WTS International Transportation YOU program, an annual youth summit is held in Washington DC.  WTS-Boston has the opportunity to send a student and mentor to this year’s Summit as representatives of WTS Boston’s chapter of Transportation YOU. This year’s DC Youth Summit will be held June 22nd – 26th, 2016 and  is a wonderful opportunity to network with top transportation professionals, gain a better understanding about the various opportunities available within the industry, and for students to think about college and the best steps to take to get on track to become a transportation professional. For more information about the program and to read testimonials from the past few years, visit: http://www.transportationyou.org/dc-summit/. Also, read a first-hand account from last year’s WTS-Boston representatives here.
WTS-Boston is excited to have the opportunity to send a mentor/mentee pair to the Summit. The chapter will cover the cost of the DC Summit registration (including materials, speakers, lodging and meals during the course of the program) as well as airfare to fly the mentee to and from the conference. WTS-Boston mentors who participate in the Transportation YOU DC Summit are encouraged to leverage funds from their agency/organization, where possible, to offset travel costs to attend.  WTS-Boston will cover the remaining mentor travel costs.  
WTS-Boston will choose the student to attend based on academic interests, extracurricular activities, and demonstrated interest in the Transportation YOU program. Mentors will be chosen based on previous involvement in WTS the local WTS-Boston Transportation YOU program as well as commitment and approach to STEM and mentorship.
If you are interested in applying to represent WTS-Boston at this year’s Transportation YOU D.C. Summit, please fill out the applicable mentor or mentee application and return it to Katie Choe (Katie.choe@boston.gov) or Ali Love (Alison.love@stvinc.com) by Friday, February 26, 2016.
