SEPTEMBRE LEWIS WITH SIMONE BERNSTEIN
Founder | Volunteen Nation | St. Louis, Missouri
Good evening bright and shining stars! I'm so excited to bring to life the first episode of The Golden Mind Show!
The Golden Mind Show was birthed from Motivational Monday, a movement to change the way we view our Mondays. Now we are on a larger scale, hoping to encourage individuals to transform their lives in a positive way, by building their minds, through seeking to attain a positive mindset.
On this first episode, we have Simone Bernstein, the founder of Volunteen Nation, "where they are spreading the spirit of volunteerism for youth and families throughout the nation. Volunteen Nation is a youth-led national non-profit organization with volunteer, intern and scholarship resources for youth, schools, & nonprofit organizations.
Teenagers are ready to take action, and dive into solving problems in the community. Anyone can volunteer at any age. Everyone can make a difference. Make a difference today!"
Simone and her brother, Jake started the Volunteen Nation as STL Volunteen back in 2009 aiming to fill the gap between inspired youth volunteers and volunteer opportunities. She was frustrated that there weren't enough visible volunteer opportunities available for youth. A lot of companies were and still are afraid to risk the liability of having a young person volunteer with their institutions .. saying
"youth were too young to make a difference." Well Simone and Jake had a different agenda. They saw a problem in their community and sought to resolve it rather than focusing on the problem itself. What they found was that St. Louis wasn't the only community that had a disconnect between volunteers and volunteer opportunities. The same issue arose in many other communities all throughout the worldwide community!
I'm so excited to have Simone on the show... tune in, you don't want to miss any part of the interview. Comment and let me know how you were inspired to make a difference or to volunteer in your community.
