The program, in its fifth year, is sponsored by the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF). The NIAF all-expenses-paid mentoring workshops will help participants develop effective leadership skills and inform them about possible career choices.

From July 16 through July 19, 25 students will attend the NIAF Government/Public Policy S2L Workshop to explore today’s political world. Students will meet with important political leaders including Richard Benedetto, White House correspondent for USA Today; Sam Donaldson, anchor at ABC News; Minister Alberto Galluccio of the Embassy of Italy; U.S. Congressmen John Mica and Bill Pascrell, Jr., co-chairs of the Italian American Congressional Delegation; and Nick Sinatra, deputy assistant director for U.S. Inner Governmental Affairs.
