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.

Sign up for your weekly dose of parent fuel and Puget Sound family adventures.
