Play • 43 min

The future is BRIGHT, my friends! We've talked too much on this show about how businesses can recover from COVID-19.

Today, you will meet two teenage entrepreneurs who saw a need and created a project to help hundreds of elementary students from around the globe.

Sarah Shapiro and Skye Loventhal started the COVID NineTEEN Project, which provides FREE teen-led activities and one-on-one tutoring meant to support elementary school students.

The COVID NineTEEN Project is a group of motivated teens who are using this valuable time to make a difference in the world.

They hope to serve as mentors for elementary school children to help them fill their time and continue to flourish despite the uncertainty of the outside world.

I am also the founding Vice President of her school's Girl Up chapter, a softball coach for an eight and under team, and a kindergarten teacher assistant. I participate in my school's Academic mentor Program as a math tutor for underclassmen. I am passionate about advocacy and I'm so glad to be able to make a difference during this time!
