Youth Summit Industry's Chance to Help Support Future Workforce

APTA is presenting its fifth biennial Youth Summit, June 19-23 in Washington, DC, an event that will introduce up to 50 high school juniors and seniors to careers in the public transportation industry.

Students from throughout North America are selected for the all-expenses-paid summit based on an applications process; APTA is accepting applications until Feb. 17.

This year’s summit features a curriculum developed and presented by industry leaders and invited speakers and will include workshops on STEM topics, local and federal transit policy, business administration, marketing and communications, unique roles of the public and private sectors, work culture, information technology, the frontline workforce and infrastructure.

APTA members can support the summit by encouraging young people to apply, becoming a sponsor and volunteering to help plan and conduct the event.

This summit, part of APTA’s youth outreach and awareness program, is being organized under the leadership of its two advisory committee co-chairs: Jeff Wharton, member, APTA Executive Committee, chair, Business Member Board of Governors, and president, IMPulse NC LLP; and Adelee LeGrand, member, APTA Board of Directors, vice president, Transdev, and chief strategy officer, Regional Transit Authority, New Orleans.
