Strengthening America’s Youth



The Strengthening America’s Youth (SAY) Leadership Committee was established in 2010 to bring together a group of action-oriented leaders and organizations. With the help and support of the U.S. Army, the SAY committee aligns the collective efforts of each partner organization in the area of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills awareness and leverages each other’s efforts through formal and informal activities. The committee participates in vigorous discussion and information-sharing about the challenges facing the Nation’s youth including the crisis in education, childhood obesity, and workforce readiness.
