My Native Admission Statement: I am a lover of life and culture.  Give me ethnic dance, music and food – all kinds, and I am quite a happy camper.  I enjoy travelling with my partner of almost 25 years around the globe agitating systems and creating new ones.  I get really giddy hearing about my two young adult sons’ life adventures because they will never be too old to be my babies.  I probably enjoy wine more than most- especially a good Malbec or Cabernet.  In fact, I am researching how to have my own backyard vineyard on our property in Nigeria.  Life is so precious.  I spend a lot of time loving on my family and close friends because why not!

Your key initiatives for the success of the Business? Relationships with different colleges and universities have propelled GYF onto a national platform. Once students became aware of our offerings, they spread the news to their peers. Engaging more students gives us the justification to create more opportunities with new partners- great cycle.

Allison Alt: Social Impact 360 Executive Director

My Native Admission Statement: “Buy this car to drive to work. Drive to work to pay for this car.” We aren’t going to be doing this anymore. I’m changing the future of business with the next generation. There is no reason we can’t have meaning and purpose in our work, and there is no reason we can’t solve important issues that matter to all of us in a financially sustainable way. Too long, it has been a choice, do well or do good. Make money or live a meaningful life. No more.

Social Impact 360 is a Teach for America meets Tesla.  We train young people to build businesses that solve social issues and how to create social impact in corporate America. We have more than 1,000 alumni who are young CEO’s and young innovators at top companies, and we are transforming into the Service Corps for Business for Good. The purpose of the Service Corps is to train companies in how to solve pain points using corporate social responsibility and sustainability concepts because everyone should have the opportunity to “do well and do good” no matter where you work. Everyone should feel meaning and purpose in what they do, and we shouldn’t struggle for resources to do important, good, and meaningful work.

My Current Passions?

I’m a music addict. I listen to music as if it’s going to run out of supply. I’m an artist at heart.
