WorldLink Youth Town Meeting Highlights
2009 Youth Town Meeting
Student delegates from the 11th Annual Youth Town Meeting elected WorldLink’s theme for the 2008-2009 academic year. The 12th Annual Youth Town Meeting’s (YTM) theme was "On the Brink: Responding to Underlying Causes of Conflict," focusing on gender inequality, racism and xenophobia, religious intolerance and economic inequity.
The 12th Annual YTM was held on Friday, January 23, 2009.
The student-produced YTM Newspaper details the 12th Annual Youth Town Meeting briefing sessions, plenaries, and delegate responses.

A generous grant by the Beyster Family Foundation Fund at The San Diego Foundation for WorldLink's Virtual Classroom Project enabled us to share the YTM discussions with students all over the world. To view full videos of the YTM briefing sessions:
