Sometimes you meet a young person who blows your socks off.
Serena Bian and Alec Gewirtz are two of those kind of young people.
Together with them and my colleagues, I'm bringing together a group of 12 young community innovators to invest in their leadership in January 2020.
All information and the application is here.
Can you forward this to a young person who is creatively growing community?
It might be through the arts, spirituality, care-taking, activism, or business. It might be offline or online - though it'll probably include both! #GenZ
We're looking for young people who have proven themselves capable of making something happen - but mostly we want to hear from young leaders who have a burning passion for growing community, and who will be doing this for years to come.
I have been so lucky to receive mentoring and training experiences like this from Oxfam, Seth Godin, WWF and many others. This is a small way in which I can help pass on those gifts.
We'll cover food, housing and incidental costs, but we need help to pay for everyone's travel.
Can you cover one young leader's domestic flights? If so - please let me know by replying to this email. Thank you!
Or if you live in NYC and have a spare room where someone can stay, we'll gladly make use of it : )
Thank you so much.
How lucky are we to have so many fired-up, skillful, empathetic young leaders already making change!? Let us take solace in that.
Have a wonderful weekend, Shabbat Shalom,
