and share their action plans "real-time" with other delegates and with

at-risk young Americans with access to the resources they need to
succeed. From April 27 through the 29th, more than 1,700 delegates

the progress of the teams at any time by checking the Web site.
- Using Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile CDMA digital cellular phones
equipped with short messaging service, Summit organizers and
