Students from across the country will come together June 23 – June 27, 2013 to learn how public transportation helps build vibrant communities and improves the environment at APTA’s Generation Green on Board Youth Summit.

The hands-on summit will explore how communities as a whole can prosper with increased services; the role local and federal policies play in public transit usage; introduce students to lawmakers and congressional leaders; and expose participants to career opportunities in the transit industry.

Completed applications are due on Monday, April 22, 2013 and can be emailed to students@apta.com or faxed to (202) 496-4323.
