Change starts small.

Change starts in unsuspecting places. It happens in tiny towns. It emerges when humble individuals see a problem and step up to serve.

Uplifting fresh voices.

We value highlighting underrepresented leaders and new perspectives so students see people who look like them leading change.

Strength lies in the network.

We connect changemakers and their community-building efforts on college campuses around the American southeast.

Power of experiential learning.

Transformative experiences happen when you learn through doing. Lasting relationships happen when you learn in community.
