The White House Conference on Children and Youth
Every decade since 1908, the White House has hosted a Conference on Children and Youth. These conferences served as exemplary models of citizen involvement in governmental programs and resulted in achievements such as the establishment of the U.S. Children's Bureau and the American Academy of Pediatrics. The 1960 conference broadened its scope from discussion of underprivileged children to topics of concern to all children and young adults. The 1960 conference urged national and local governments and volunteer bodies to respond significantly and directly to startling statistics gathered in the 1950s. It recommended the formation of the National Committee for Children and Youth and called on all U.S. citizens to participate in taking care of the nation's young people.
