Huffington Post reports that our nation's 44th president announced plans to host a summit to promote civic engagement next month in an email sent to his supporters.

"On October 31st and November 1st, the Obama Foundation will welcome civic leaders from around Chicago, the USA, and the world to join us for a two-day immersive event in Chicago", the Obama Foundation website says.

According to the Foundation's website, the objective of this event is to bring "hundreds of leaders from around the world will come together to exchange ideas, explore creative solutions to common problems, and experience civic art, technology, and music from around the world".

The foundation tweeted out the announcement with a short one-minute clip and a link to more details.

Barack Obama on Wednesday announced a series of events to kick off the civics programming for his presidential center before construction starts next year.

"This leadership summit will be a place to gather and learn from one another, and then to go back to your communities and lead others towards hard work and change".

The Obama Foundation Summit will unfold in - where else? The focus will be "to exchange ideas, explore creative solutions to common problems, and experience civic art, technology, and music from around the world".

The foundation also announced My Brother's Keeper Alliance, the program to address achievement gaps facing young men of color which Obama helped launch in 2014, will be rolled into the foundation.

"When President Obama left public office in January, he asked people to believe-not in his ability to bring about change, but in their own".

The Obama Foundation Fellowship will support 20 Fellows on a two-year, non-residential program for training and leadership development. The first Training Day takes place in Chicago on October 14.

"Based on what we've heard from you, I'm here to tell you what's next", Obama says.
