I was inspired to become involved with The Philanthropy Project because I believe the organization fills a gap in our society today. Providing youth with the opportunity and resources to take action and have an impact will result in meaningful change, while instilling a sense of responsibility in the leaders of tomorrow.
I believe that youth contain the single most important element of change – a vision. While others spend time looking back, youth live in the moment, always with an eye on making tomorrow remarkable.
