Social Entrepreneurs: Youth Venture-That Was Easy Winner
Pardon me while I catch up on a few things that I missed while I was traveling last week. I reported last month on the Youth Venture/Staples "That Was Easy" Competition, co-sponsored by Changemakers and Staples. Changemakers recently announced the Grand Prize Winner, as well as several finalists.
Youth Together, a volunteer youth service organization is the competition's Grand Prize Winner. Youth Together's goal is to engage young people in community service to help abused, homeless and ill children. Youth Together is a 501c3 non-profit organization that works with elementary and middle school student councils, Students Thinking of People and Peer Assistance and Leadership programs to help homeless, abused, and critically ill children as well as homeless animals and the Dallas Zoo.
The "That Was Easy" Competition: Showcasing Youth Ventures that are using skills and passions to create a positive impact in society. The prizes include a $1,000 grant for the winning venture, special celebration, and consulting opportunity at Staples Headquarters, and $5,000 Staples shopping spree.
