Congressman Aaron Schock (R-IL), 31, represents the 18th District of Illinois and currently serves on the House Ways and Means committee. In addition, he serves as a Deputy Republican Whip and as a member of the Conference Advisory Committee. At the age of 23, Aaron Schock was simultaneously the youngest school board president in history and the youngest Illinois State Representative. He is the first Member of Congress to be born in the 1980’s, making him the first Millennial to serve in Congress.
On September 18, 2013, the Millennial Action Project was pleased to partner with Congressman Aaron Schock (R-IL) and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) to launch the bipartisan Congressional Future Caucus. As the nation’s first Congressional caucus led by Millennials, the Future Caucus is focused on developing long-term solutions to issues facing America’s next generation. Its mission is to foster a bipartisan community of Members of Congress dedicated to pragmatic, innovative leadership on future-oriented issues and engaging with future leaders across the country on critical policy issues.
