Mar 11, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

According to FedScope data from the Office of Personnel Management, the federal government’s human resources agency, the federal workforce is rapidly aging. Nearly 30% of government employees are 55 or older, while only 7% are younger than 30. This session explores the impact of young people in government and the unique value they bring to public service. Take a closer look at how young people in the Executive Office of the President, National Park Service, U.S. International Agency for Development, and U.S. Digital Corps are shaping how the government works to improve the lives of others.
