Rick Newell '93 shares his journey through personal struggles early on in his tech career. After hitting rock bottom, he felt called by God to "wake up," and moved to Seattle where he began working at the Rotary Boys & Girls Club in the Central District. Through his interactions with young men at the Club, he saw the hardships they had to overcome and came to firmly believe in the need for positive, near-peer, male role models. He founded the Mentoring Urban Students & Teens (MUST) mentoring program, which incrementally adds youth and mentors, and adapts based on feedback from those who were being served. Now, he's on to a new project supporting children and teens in foster care. You don't want to miss this episode of the SPU Voices Podcast.
