Kennedy, and for the first time seriously considering pursuing a life in public service. in 1992, President Clinton became the youngest president to be elected since JFK, and the first of his generation to hold that office.

In 2018, Steven Garza had a similarly life-changing experience at Texas Boys State, which is chronicled in the critically acclaimed documentary “Boys State.” In this episode, Steven joins President Clinton to share stories about their experiences at Boys State, learning what it takes to run for office, how to grapple with issues like voting rights and gun safety, and why it’s so important that young leaders step up to serve and move America forward.
