Youth volunteers are critical to bring about impactful change in society through enabling the sustainable and incremental success of our projects.
In particular, youth from underprivileged sections of society have emerged as potential leaders. They have an acute sense of empathy and a practical understanding of root issues active in their communities. Project MAGNOLIA aims to provide focused mentorship and resource support for these volunteers to exponentially grow and hone their leadership skills. These include knowledge and skill-building delivered by experts and building an ecosystem of accountability and a sense of shared success when they take responsibility for engaging younger kids in their communities and foster a sense of belonging and commitment to continued education and learning.
The project works to help these youth leaders optimally identify areas of interest like art, social work, dance, music, and theater through focused workshops run by established individuals in these fields.
MAGNOLIA aims to eventually provide comprehensive personality development and enable successful integration into mainstream society and expand their opportunities for a successful career in fields of their interest.
