Today's episode features Bianca Jortner and Savanna Jiang: the co-founders of the nonprofit organization Youth Promise. Bianca is a rising senior based in Connecticut and Savanna is a rising junior based in New York. After seeing the disparity gap in access to education, they were both inspired to start Youth Promise and provide educational opportunities for inner-city youth, youth from low-income households, and more. We discuss their organization, the importance of educational equity, and how they’ve been both impacted by the work they do. Take a listen!
