President Barack Obama will speak at 1 p.m. today in Philadelphia for his second annual “Back-to-School Speech.”

The invitation-only event will be held at Julia R. Masterman Laboratory and Demonstration School, at 1699 Spring Garden St., and will be streamed live on and broadcast on CNN, according to a White House press release.

In last year’s address — given at an Arlington, Va., high school — Obama called on students to discover their talents and passions.

“Every single one of you has something to offer. And you have a responsibility to yourself to discover what that is,” he said last year.

Obama will be back in Philadelphia next Monday for a campaign fundraiser for Democratic Senate candidate Joe Sestak.
