Students as Change-Agents

One of the greatest opportunities—perhaps the greatest—we have to affect change in the orphan care and adoption advocacy landscape is to engage and invest in today’s students. These young women and men do not have to wait until tomorrow to lead change—they can begin leading today. A Gospel-centered, intentional plan to educate and equip high school and college students will impact the future more than any other strategic program. Join us and meet three students who are already leading the way as change-agents today. Hear their stories, and be moved to ways you too can begin engaging and investing in today’s youth.
