“A third of the young people who come to us feel like it’s unclear to them how to affect change. And so our goal has to be start small, start with the things that are accessible that you can actually do today, whether that’s educating yourself or taking a first volunteer action. And then that portal can be a way to level up engagement so that you get to do more and more over time.” – DeNora Getachew
