I had the pleasure of working at Global Kids in NYC for a couple of years, as part of their Online Leadership Program, where I learned so much about youth development, digital learning, and teen leadership. I definitely would not be where I am today without the experiences and connections I made at Global Kids.
That story is magnified a thousand fold by all the of teens who have come through Global Kids' doors for the past 25 years. What started as a dream by local educator Carole Artigiani in 1989 has blossomed into a powerful organization transforming at-risk teens in NYC, DC and beyond into global leaders.
Check out this awesome video that describes the tremendous impact this group has made in the lives of urban teens throughout the years. I'm honored to lend my financial support to this organization, and I encourage you to contribute too.
