“We have the distinct privilege of working with the highest potential young people I have ever met. With this comes an enormous responsibility-- to educate the next generation of great leaders, creators, thinkers, problem solvers, collaborators, and communicators. We must arm them with an education of both the mind and the heart, so that they develop the courage, conviction, compassion, and clarity to be the changemakers our world so badly needs now more than ever.”
