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, 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 Discovery Center, a year-long service learning program for high school students designed to educate, engage and empower youth.
These teens have their sights set on creating a more equitable world. Learn how the Gates Foundation Discovery Center is helping them get there and how you can, too.
