Renaissance Foundation Young Leaders were invited to participate in a special Town Hall meeting in London with the American President Barrack Obama.
The President gave an opening address and speech to inspire the young people to take action in their local communities and to pursue issues they care about.
Some of the group were able to meet with the president after his talk and also other inspirational guests who attended including actor Benedict Cumberbatch, The Bank of England Governor Mark Carney and NBA Legend John Amechi among many others.
The Event was kindly hosted by American UK Ambassador, Matthew Barzun who visited the Renaissance Foundation centre and spoke with our young people in 2015 as part of our wider citizenship programme for the young people we support.
