Leading an Initiative to Spread the Word About Teens
Let's face it, 2020 has been a year for the books. There has been so much which has occurred from the COVID-19 Pandemic to Protests all over the nation. The #WeWereHere Project is a project I helped start with the Illinois Youth Association and Schaumburg Library in order to spread the word about actions teens are taking day-by-day in order to make an impact on society. There are four different categories to whcih Teen (12-19 years old) can submit to and in turn they can receive volunteer hours for their work. I developed the front & back-end website for the website, and we are rapidly expanding the program, now at 11 organizations participating and more!
