Beginning on Halloween night, the Obama Foundation will begin a series of one-day training sessions and also will host a summit aimed at promoting civic engagement among students and young adults, officials said Wednesday.
EDITOR’S NOTE: After being exposed as nothing more than a shell corporation for Hillary to sell State Department influence and favors, the Clinton Foundation was forced to close its door amidst heavy scrutiny during the 2016 Presidential campaign. Not be be outdone, Michelle and Barack Obama now have their own foundation and are launching their first-ever “summit” on the high holy day of Satanism, Halloween night. I know it sounds like a story from The Onion, but guess what? It’s not.
In a video, former President Barack Obama said the programming, along with the creation of a fellowship program and the incorporation of his My Brother’s Keeper Alliance into the foundation, is his way of grooming the next generation to “change the world.”
“We’re bringing together hundreds of leaders from all around the world for a hands-on exchange of ideas in my hometown,” Obama says in the video, which was posted to the foundation’s website and emailed to followers Wednesday morning.

“The summit will be a place to gather and learn from one another, and then go back to your communities to lead others in the hard work of change. And it will also help guide our foundation as we continue to design programs that will connect and support the next generation of young leaders here in the United States and around the globe.”
The announcement comes just one day before the foundation’s top brass will meet with the public for the first time to discuss how the Obama Presidential Center will look and what it will offer.
“We’re going to be focusing like a laser beam on this idea of active citizenship, to give people, organizations and communities the skills and the tools that they need to actively engage in positive change,” foundation CEO David Simas said.
On Thursday, Kensington Palace announced that Prince Harry will visit Chicago on Oct. 31 for the inaugural summit of the Obama Foundation. The visit means a reunion with his pal and fellow champion of veterans, former First Lady Michelle Obama.
During the Chicago visit, Harry will discuss the power of youth leadership to lead change at a local and global level. In particular, he’ll address his work with the Full Effect project, an initiative in Nottingham in the U.K. that aims to open up opportunities for young people.
