Next Up Young Worker Council Needs Your Input!
Kurston Cook, AFL-CIO Young Worker coordinator, sends us this.
Next week, 20 members of the AFL-CIO Young Worker Advisory Council will meet in Washington, D.C., to finalize the 2012 work plan for the AFL-CIO Next Up Young Worker Program. The advisory council advises the AFL-CIO on its programming as it relates to young people, and leaders implementation of these programs. One major goal of Next Up is to be a voice for all young workers and to provide inspiring and relevant opportunities for participation within the labor movement.
So, we want to hear from you!
What would you like to see the AFL-CIO’s Next Up Program focus on in 2012? How about in the next three years? How can the AFL-CIO and the advisory council best meet the needs of young workers, young worker groups, and your respective communities? Next Up is for young workers by young workers, so your ideas and insights are important.
Please send us your ideas on Facebook here or via the Twitter hashtag #YWAC2012. We will review them at next week’s Young Worker Advisory Council meeting and report back with a plan.
As cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead has said:
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
We look forward to hearing your ideas.
