Unleashing the Potential of Underserved Students

Far too many students in the United States and around the world face challenges when seeking a quality education; this untapped potential is a waste of societal and economic resources. In this session, education and civil society leaders will talk about their efforts to engage underserved and refugee youth, and their successes and failures in helping those youth overcome barriers to success. Demond Drummer, co-founder and executive director of Coderspace and a 2018 Aspen Ideas Festival Scholar, will also be joining the panel.
