February 2022
Nick was introduced to civic duty when he joined Y@CC at age 12 and remained active through his teen years and young adulthood. Going full circle, Nick now facilitates Y@CC and S@CH as well as after school advocacy programs. He is greatly interested in empowering youth just as PRO empowered him and is driven to help the youth find their voices and give them the tools to fight for positive change.

What is your "WHY" when it comes to the work you do?

I chose to do this work because it is an opportunity to change lives in profound ways. PRO has taught me invaluable things about my community and how to be a champion for change. I would like to give the youth those same skills and to amplify their voices. To me, the youth are like ores of fine metal; all with potential, and PRO is a tool to refine them.
