- “It is necessary to support the creative freedom of young people worldwide”
- “When we do not have statistics on a key segment of the population then that is a form of exclusion”
- “What can youth do for a better inclusion of youth living with disability?”
- “How can we bring employers into the classroom, so learning can be relevant?”
- “What is the change we want to create?”
We work with multicultural group of students from different private and public schools in Dallas to learn diversity in action by implementing local, national and global need based projects creating Unity, Compassion and witnessing our community service hours evolving in project design, delivery and scalable impact.
