My name is Isabella Schell. I am the Owner and Creator of Girls Educations Matter. I created GEM to raise awareness about the fact that, around the world, 130 Million girls will never step foot in a classroom and learn simple human rights like reading and writing. I also wanted to provide a quick and easy way fro people to find places to donate to and support this cause. I created a newsletter on my website called Our Voices and Stories to inspire young girls with stories of powerful and strong women around the world.

If you would like to check out my website or support this cause, go to my website girlseduca...

I’m looking for ACTIVE AND DEDICATED writers and people interested in assisting podcast productions to join my organization called MoDiv (Modern Divergence). Modern Divergence focuses on providing resources for children and teens with mental and developmental conditions. We steer from the stigma of “needing to be fixed” and focus on positive acceptance.

Email me at with a story plot or podcast episode idea to join the team!
Hey, one of my organization's (United Under Art) chapters is doing a fundraiser (through art commissions) to support artists affected by COVID-19. They're looking for artists to volunteer to do the commissions and people to commission works. It would mean a lot if this could be shared with more people.

Hello, my name is Serena Ding and I am a junior high school student in NYC. I am currently leading a global service project (called United Under Art) to help underprivileged children and elderly through art.

Our primary activities for the elderly (especially those with dementia) involve donating cards, arranging benefit concerts, collecting old devices and creating customized playlists. For underprivileged children, we are arranging music/art workshops to get them interested in and explore the arts and donating art supplies. Most of our events are in NYC but we are hoping to help others set up and lead events/donation drives in their own communities.

I am looking to expand my volunteer network. I have people from all around the world, such as from NYC, Virginia, Turkey, India, Pakistan, Canada, and Ireland. You can volunteer your time in marketing, events organization, donations, and/or technology divisions. Our group has a wide variety of interests and intended majors, from CS to music to business. We also offer a program for people to become local leaders (ambassadors) for those that need leadership opportunities.

Here is our website (still in design, but should be up around this weekend):

Hello everyone!

My name is Hannah and I am a staff member in an organization named Beyond the Five. Our mission is to provide a high-quality education to anyone and everyone, regardless of their background.

For the 2020-21 school year, we are making a large change in our methodology: We are creating free, online, self-paced classes for students to access! This past year, we have only taught AP classes live. However, we are also diversifying our subjects to non-AP areas, so we are glad to have classes of all sorts to tend to all student interests! Some examples of classes being formed right now include Introduction to Arabic Culture, Mythology, Abstract Mathematics, and College Applications. (Many more on the way!)

More than just the class itself, students are able to interact with other bright minds and become knowledgeable in the subjects they take. As of 2019, we have a 100% pass rate on all AP subjects taught! We hope to continue this trend as we become more accessible to students.

As of now, there are a total of 41 classes being formed (14 AP, 27 non-AP). We are looking to eventually cover every AP exam! Our current team of approximately 20 instructors are working very hard to create classes, but we need extra help.

Are you very knowledgeable in a subject and like creating curricula, lessons, assignments, and exams? Do you enjoy spreading your interests to other motivated students? If so, then becoming a Beyond the Five course creator would be a perfect spot for you :)!

Beyond the Five (BT5) course creators create these online courses for student use. Typically, the average course takes around 75-100 hours of commitment to create. Additionally, there are leadership opportunities available within the organization, as well as the opportunity to form connections with current college students that work as course creators!

Please contact me at if you have any suggestions, questions, or if you are interested in creating a class! Thank you so much for reading :)

My name is Johnson Jin and I am a 2021 student. I am the president and founder of an organization called the Global Youth Coalition where we believe that the youth generation is responsible with helping unprivileged communities in predominantly the education field. Over the past year, we have expanded across the US with several international chapters as well located in Turkey, Pakistan, and China. By having each chapter help with their local region, it will create a large impact to the world that we are all connected to through a network in of our organization. In my local chapter for example, we do biweekly reading buddies in an under privileged communities as well as we are working on a bookshelf to distribute to a facility such as Boys and Girls club. I am also flying out to Seattle in March as an invitational speaker at a conference. With this being said, I am not trying to boast any accomplishments, but trying to convey that GYC has a bright future ahead and we are welcome to any new members. As we are looking for means of expansion, if you are interested in starting a chapter in your school or want any details feel free to message me!

Tech Leadership Opportunity!
Hi everyone,

I'm Russell and I'm here representing Tech Literacy for Seniors. We are a nonprofit (seeking incorp.) that basically provides tech help for seniors.

We are currently seeking motivated individuals who want to start chapters and serve as Chapter Presidents.

If you are interested, please visit our website russellyan... where you can learn more and sign up to a Chapter President.
Is this only for US students?
Hi Brent, Nope! We welcome international students to start chapters as well. By the way, here is some more information about the organization:

Our new website is

Tech Literacy for Seniors is a program designed to help seniors become comfortable and capable with using their devices. We coordinate a network of chapters, led by Chapter Leaders and supported by student volunteers, which provide free tech help to seniors in the surrounding area. Typically, Chapter Leaders organize a group of volunteers and find a location to teach at (like a library). Then, they hold tech help sessions where student volunteers tutor the seniors one-on-one.
What would you say should be the minimum expectation in terms of computer skills of Chapter Presidents?
With all the talk about AI I think it will never replace human intelligence - it can make some things easier but it will always be just another tool (like smart phones).
