JeffreyM is pleased to announce our partnership with the WE organization – an international charity and educational partner whose mission is to create a world where all young people are free to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change in their community and around the world.
The organization was founded by Craig Kielburger in 1995, when at the age of 12 he gathered 11 school friends to begin fighting child labor. Today, they have more than 2.3 million youth involved in innovative education and development programs.
Domestically, they empower young people and equip them with the resources, education, inspiration and action ideas they need to make a positive impact through WE Act. WE Act is a comprehensive educational program for schools that enhances service learning programs by delivering campaigns and support resources. Each year, WE, together with WE Day, celebrates the amazing achievements youth are making around the world.
Internationally, WE works in eight different countries to break the cycle of poverty through the Adopt-a-Village model. They work alongside the men, women and children who every day strive to free themselves from poverty, exploitation, disease and thirst. This effort is not charity, it is sustainability. Adopt-A-Villages works to identify and create initiatives that address the needs of the community in a holistic way. All elements of the Adopt a Village model are designed to be owned and maintained by the community, and self-sustained within five years after project implementation is completed.
Through our partnership, JeffreyM Consulting has committed to sponsor Seattle WE Day over the next three years and in an on-going effort our consultants have opportunities to make an impact in our global community.
We are thrilled to formalize this partnership with WE as we endeavor to give back and support those in need.
