Through the confusion, stress and worry that the pandemic naturally causes, young leaders, activists and volunteers across the country are generating ideas, energy and empathy. It’s been proven time and time again there is no better resource in times of trouble than young people. We need the kind of initiative and resourcefulness that can motivate a nation when it needs it the most.

  • Tell his personal story of creating his national nonprofit
  • Provide tips on amping up your role in the community during this challenging time
