According to Executive Director Aakash Shah:
And their hard work – coupled with the wisdom of our Board – even caught the attention of our nation’s leaders, who recently honored the difference our volunteers made at the White House. A recording of the event can be found here, with opening remarks by White House Chief of Staff Dennis McDonough followed by my remarks about Be Jersey Strong as part of a panel discussion.
Be Jersey Strong also recently announced ambitious plans to expand their work. We wish the organization well and congratulate Aakash Shah for once again proving worthy of the title, Young Changemaker.
