The Youth Summit 2013 is an event championed by the Junior Professional Associates (JPA) Program and the World Bank Group (WBG) youth with help of other units, held on October 23, 2013.
In 2012, the World Bank Group President Jim Kim challenged the organization’s youth to think of ways to foster growth in young professionals who understand the consequences of persistent poverty, and are able to create solutions to eliminate extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity. The WBG Youth are embracing President’s challenge by asking young people around the world to participate in the Youth Summit 2013.
