2nd Annual AMENDS Summit
April 9 - 13, 2013
Stanford University

In the wake of recent events in the Middle East and United States, we have simultaneously witnessed the profound power of youth to drive positive local, regional, and global change; the overwhelming obstacles that stand in their way; and the necessity of greater collaboration, understanding, and mutual respect between our respective regions.

The American Middle Eastern Network for Dialogue at Stanford (AMENDS) is a student initiative at Stanford University that brings together some of the most promising youth change agents from across the Middle East, North Africa, and the United States. Together, they collaborate with each other, advance their work, and share, through TED-style talks, their ideas and experiences with the world.

As an AMENDS Delegate, you will also receive mentorship from and network with established leaders in your field; attend a five-day summit at Stanford University from April 9-13, 2013; and engage with 40 fellow youth leaders from over fifteen countries.

Join the AMENDS network of youth leaders by applying today.

Deadline for application: Friday, October 26, 2012 at midnight (Pacific Daylight Time)
