Young Entrepreneur Council & National Society of Collegiate Scholars Rally To Fix Young America
Today at 2 p.m., the Young Enterepeneur Council and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars will be rallying on over 300 college campuses to help fix young America. Some of the ideas the Council is supporting are student loan forgiveness, increasing graduation rates and fostering innovation in all regions across the country.
But that’s not it – they’re also trying to get one of the most resonant spokespeople for the college-aged population on board: Stephen Colbert. Colbert, although his late-night persona is a parody, has proved to be politically useful. His super PAC made national news, and his television show has been able to launch issues from the miniscule to network news.
Young Entrepreneur Council’s Scott Gerber has garnered support from sources like TIME, Fortune, Fast Company, The Next Web and Yahoo. He’s encouraging supporters among college-aged students to go out and march, and to use social media resources like Twitter and Facebook to contact Stephen Colbert to get him on board.
Today’s rally will be covered on MTV.com. For more information, follow the #FixYoungAmerica hashtag on Twitter or text FixYoungAmerica to 82257.
