Chances are good that you’ve heard of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. From poverty to health to education, the foundation and its partners have improved the lives of billions of people. What you might not know: They’re hoping to inspire the next generation of changemakers, too.    

Every month this year, we’ll profile one teen from the Seattle area who is making a difference in their community. Some of the teens featured are involved in the Youth Ambassadors Program (YAP) at the Gates Foundation, a year-long service learning program for high school students designed to educate, engage and empower youth.

These teens have their sights set on a better, brighter future. Learn how the Gates Foundation Discovery Center is helping them get there and how you can, too.

DON'T MISS A THING. Sign up for your weekly dose of parent fuel and local adventures.
