Speaking on the reason for the initiative Colin Powell made the following remarks: "Young people have long been one of my top priorities, and never more so than now. The world's youth are not only our future but also our greatest hope for solving long-term problems and for building vitally needed understanding between peoples and cultures. I look forward to speaking one-on-one with young people from across the world in this unique forum to discuss world affairs."

President, MTV Group and chairman, Interactive Music, MTV: Music Television Judy McGrath said: "From our post-September 11 programming, our forum with New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani to our Choose or Lose and Rock the Votework, giving a voice to young people and access to world leaders is something that we are very passionate about. We look forward to a lively and open exchange about the issues that young people around the world are facing at this time in history."
