Red Bull Announces Final Participants for First-Ever U.S. Social Entrepreneur Program
Friday, July 21, 2017
Hundreds of people from across the country applied and only a few were hand selected to be a part of the first-ever U.S. Red Bull Amaphiko Academy, a social entrepreneurship program that aims to bring together and uplift individuals who are using their talent and energy to tackle social issues in their community. Today the select group of individuals – bios below – were announced and on August 10 they will make their way to Baltimore, MD for a 10-day immersion of lectures, storytelling workshops, collaboration sessions, coaching clinics, and business simulations all hosted by some of the country’s leading change makers.
“I’m a passionate person who funnels my experiences into creating solutions and opportunities; I’m about action, results and more importantly, positive impact,” said Brittany Young, a 2017 Red Bull Amaphiko Academy participant and founder of B-360 Baltimore, a community partnership creating an avenue for students to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) using dirt-bikes. “I want everyone to see that small good deeds can lead to large impacts and positive changes.”
