Kick-Off Event: State of Student Debt in California
NexGen Policy and Young Invincibles welcome attendees to the Free My Future: Studen Loan Debt Summit. NextGen Policy joins Young Invincibles’ annual State of Young California conference to talk about issues impacting young people and student borrowers. In the face of many challenges 2020 has brought on, California was still able to make great strides to support student borrowers and so we are honored to have guest speakers to talk about the progressive steps California made this year.

Panel: Real Talk – How Students Actually Pay for College
