The Manifesto:

We believe students can change the world. Our ideas matter. Our efforts can make the difference. Our future depends on it. We believe it lies within all of us. We have the ability: to lead when leadership is required; to exercise humility when not; to collaborate with others on creative solutions; to adapt with our ever-changing environment; and to keep our love of continuous learning alive until our last breath. We are leading a movement across America to bring together engineers and designers, scientists and sociologists, STEM students and liberal artists. Together we will harness our creative potential, invent truly innovative solutions, hone our entrepreneurial mindset and bring our bold ideas to life. Our nation needs us. The time is now.
