Frank commented on Youth Leadership Conferences

Fantastic work, @JUMP team! As the Founder and CEO for 9 years of JUMP's partner in Latin America and the Caribbean, I can attest to the impactful work that they do. With Global Potential (www.global-potential.org) and the support of JUMP, we were able to have profound impacts on the lives of over 4000 youth in Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua. I have witnessed JUMP expand this model to East Africa, have met and worked with a number of the local youth, and believe strongly that this project is an important investment to be made. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. I am also a lecturer on youth and community social development at 6 universities in North America, and believe the JUMP conference model to be one of the most cost-effective and positively impactful interventions out there.
