We wanted to take the time to hear from these inspiring students because, after all, this is a big reason why we keep showing up every day – to help people find their way into and through adulthood, to help them discover their passion and direction, as Kaeley Ipson wrote below.

It’s also about showing the world that these are the excellent, skilled, adaptable, positive contributors to the workplace and to society more broadly. These are the people, who, through their experiences in helping communities prosper, are surely the very people New Jersey’s employers and social innovation investors should be climbing over themselves to entice into their business worlds.
