Teaming up to tap the energy of youth
Posted by Kristi Heim
Many nonprofits would like to get young people involved as volunteers and donors, but they’re not sure how to reach them.
Ryan Hodgson is using music to open the door. His organization, Team Up for Nonprofits, is hosting its second event in downtown Seattle tonight to benefit Seattle Works. They’re getting a boost from local speed skater J.R. Celski. After meeting him through a colleague, Hodgson heard that Celski wanted to do a musical event to give money to a nonprofit, and the two decided to join forces.
