In the realm of transformative changework, the future looks much brighter when we support our youth – particularly those who might not otherwise have important opportunities in their lives.
With tight budgets forcing schools to make tough program decisions, we talk on Episode 5 of the Upswell Podcast with two changemakers who are working to enrich young people with experiences that build character, expand their world views, and prepare them to be tomorrow’s informed citizens and leaders.
We meet Anise Hayes, Founder of Atlantic Impact, a Detroit-based organization that brings back the wonder of field trips – both locally in the Detroit area, and through international travel.
Then we talk with Eva Fordham, Vice President of Development at After-School All-Stars. Founded by Arnold Schwarzenegger, and with headquarters in Los Angeles and Washington, DC, and chapters nationwide, they provide comprehensive after-school programs to help keep children safe and support future success.
Take a listen to hear how the missions of these two organizations take different approaches, but have the same intended result — helping our children succeed in school and in life.
