Last week, Heritage’s news site, The Daily Signal, continued it’s rise above the Mainstream Media by gaining exclusive access to the White House’s Generation Next event for millennials.

This event was focused on preparing the Millennial generation to enter the work force as qualified, productive workers.

This is a mission that Heritage is in alignment with and works on through our Young Leaders Internship program and our Congressional Fellows program that prepares young conservatives for their future careers in the conservative movement and the public service spheres.

It was an honor for us to be the media outlet the White House chose to share their message on millennial outreach.

The team interviewed several White House officials, including Ivanka Trump, Kellyanne Conway, Mercedes Schlapp, Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, and HHS Secretary Alex Azar.

You can view their interviews below:

Ivanka Trump on Jobs, Millennials, and #MeToo:

Kellyanne Conway on Opiod Crisis, Her Critics, and Being a “problematic woman”:

Mercedes Sharp on What the Media Doesn’t Tell You about Trump:

Labor Secretary Alex Acosta on Trump’s Job-Creation Success:

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar on 3 steps to combating the Opioid Crisis:

 

What are your thoughts on how conservatives can reach more young people?

Remind the young folks that the first amendment applies to all of us, let them read the facts on gun control etc…not just glean from their “non-real working” liberal professors….

The problem here is complex, but it begins as early as K through 12 and becomes increasingly severe in our four-year colleges. I believe that, as parents, we must get much more actively involved in personally attending classes, identifying the left-leaning teachers, and insisting on reducing or eliminating the political bias being taught there as well as being more aware of the slanted content in textbooks.

Internships at the Heritage foundation is one way to educate, and encourage young people to take more interest and a part in how our Democratic Republic functions under our Constitution.

there is a movement in the colleges which advocates individual liberty and limited central government. Inspired by Ron Paul StudentsForLiberty.org and YALiberty.org Young AmericansForLiberty.org have grown exponentially and are on over 1000 campuses with hundreds of thousands of student activists who recruit classmates, read books by free market advocates of the Austrian school of economics, and are determined to continue their growth until they are on every campus. Urge you to affiliate with them, make them aware of your existence and share common goals.

Education, we spend way to much money, when the students grades are poor. Schools need to go back to the basics that worked, in teaching students. The foundation of education needs to be changed. I watched a Blue Ribbon School from 10 years ago, possibly might lose its accreditation. Our Children have been indoctrinated for years while parents don’t get more involved. Where did the discipline go? Now the message is do what you feel is right. Not what is right? what is wrong. We will help send our grandson to private school where there is no Blurred Lines. Bottom line, pay for an education when you really learn something. Our Grandson will know how to Read, Oh! and Write, and Math. If he wants to go to college, that will be private also, no crayons, safe space, teddy bear, hot cocoa. He will be raised right. God is always in my equasion

Most of above were black pages. Yuk!

Why not insist that our textbooks and all curriculum from K to PHD be solidly grounded in facts and truth and not in philosophy, ideology, or opinion?

Delmore G Hayes - March 30, 2018

I really enjoyed watching these interviews. They were full of information straight from the White House and I thought the people from the Daily Signal did a fantastic job asking the important and proper questions. It supplies me first hand information that I can pass on to many other Americans. I would like to know if it is possible to share these interviews on Facebook. Thanks so much.

Author Steven Lawrence - April 2, 2018

Yes, you can definitely share them on Facebook. You can go to The Daily Signal’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/TheDailySignalNews/ and then click on “videos” on the left-hand side.

Thanks for reaching out!

Excellent idea for parents to attend classes, and familiarize themselves with the content of textbooks. I think many would be horrified at what they learn. Would principals/administrators allow parents to sit in on classes??

Robert Gianino - March 30, 2018

Does that include texts in philosophy, politics and literature? The social sciences and arts & letters aren’t quite as fact-based as the natural sciences. Even the natural sciences would suffer if opinions were banished. How would hypotheses be made? Your suggestion would smother inquiry.

JOE LAROCCA - March 30, 2018

It all starts at home. If parents would provide stronger moral guidance, discipline (tough love) and become more involved in the lives of their children by instilling positive challenges and goals, they would be better prepared to deal with the far left deep state teachers and professors and media propaganda /fake news. NO SIMPLE TASK. They must be taught and instilled in the great long standing traditions of our country and its forefathers and its heroes who fought and died for their freedom to live in this great country. Teach the Constitution to them so they can better understand how our government should work. However it help greatly if we had HONEST men and governing our country who care more about the welfare of the citizens and the country than themselves!!!!!!!

I do not read lips well enough to follow these discussions! What happened to your sound system?

Jerry Metcalf - March 31, 2018

Expose the left leaning teachers, cut federal funding, outlaw labor unions for educators.

Katie Clark - March 31, 2018

Opinions are fine so long as they are based on the true facts. Everyone is entitled to their opinions but they should not be based on our feelings. We often hear the expression “I feel “ that such and such is the way to go. Is that based on the rules of logic and true facts? Or is it just an “opinion “?

Fran Neill - March 31, 2018

Get kids, outdoors & active in sports, enjoying nature & National parks, fresh air &
possibly camping, hiking, horseback riding..whatever, that they get interested in that is wholesome. Camps are a good way to expose people of all ages & abilities to
outdoors, activities, & new friends, education. Pets & animals, add learning.

Put prayer back in schools!

Start a junior Heritage Foundation which can start with elementary school and high school and hope it is not too late. Let parents know it is also their obligation to talk to their children about political actions that affect yourself which will later affect them. Be patriotic and let them know you love this country and respect this country.

If it is true that there is an “island” of plastic debris in the Pacific Ocean, I think Pres. Trump should announce and launch a national mission to clean it up.
This would be inspirational to young people in almost the same way that Pres Kennedy’s moon mission was – it would be exciting, challenging, and worthy.
Many people, from all sides, could unite around such an effort, and it would make conservative ideas and views more approachable for our young people.
Expensive? Maybe, maybe not, but the returns would be enormous, and it would make liberal and Democrat Party comment irrelevant. AND drive them nuts!!
