Commitment to Action

Democracy 2.0

Commitment by

Mobilize.org

In 2010, Mobilize.org committed to convene three Democracy2.0 Summits to invest in community college student leaders' potential to solve some of the United States' greatest problems. Mobilize.org will invite 150 community college student leaders to each of the three summits, which Mobilize.org will hold in Charlotte, NC; New York, NY; and Miami, FL. In each summit, Mobilize.org will encourage attendees to focus on local priorities, specifically addressing the most urgent barriers that prevent students from completing their education. Mobilize.org will also distribute $25,000 to the top projects that address community college completion rates, and work with these projects for one year. To ensure these efforts are sustainable, Mobilize.org will also convene a President's Council of Community Colleges.
