Our inception was in Austin, TX with the intent to travel the states volunteering, creating videos, and inspiring youth to volunteer. That soon changed when we made the decision to start to build a relationship with students and a community. We landed in Portland and have been building here since.
We realize that in order to improve our programs, we need more knowledge, support, and understanding from supporters here in Portland. We brought on Natasha Thaweesee as an AmeriCorps VISTA member in August to help us build out a local side of our board of directors. She is currently working with seven community members to develop a board composed of individuals that will contribute to our areas of need and actively engage in our mission. A local and active board of directors will broaden our reach so more students can chase their passions!
