We inspire change by providing opportunities for young people who will be known for their activism, compassion, empathy, and engaged citizenship.

 
 
 
 
 

The Impact Center was created with the singular goal of connecting students with meaningful service opportunities that help transform their passion into action. By getting young people involved with volunteering in their communities at an early age, we hope to inspire lifelong commitments to service and learning.
