Orange Duffel Bag Initiative

Mission: 

“Orange Duffel Bag Initiative, a 501c3, provides at-risk teens and young adults programs proven to improve their education success, ongoing advocacy, support to their guardians and caring adults, and service to the community in a spirit of offering hope and positive systemic change.”

Why I choose this group:

This comes from another search of my company’s internal website. What drew me to it was that it’s another example of a single person who rally’s people together to change their community from within.

I have worked with At-risk youth in my own community and one thing I’ve learned is that they don’t need pity or help, they need to be engaged and empowered. These are very powerful people who’ve had that power pushed down or brushed aside. I appreciate that The Orange Duffel Initiative sees that as well and addresses the real needs of those they serve.
