Though the holidays are over, 15-year-old Remington Youngblood’s spirit of giving — and helping those in need — has not diminished.
In fact, in the last five years, the Lambert High School sophomore has only worked harder to help those in need, by expanding his student-led nonprofit, Change 4 Georgia, or C4G, which he started at age 10.
While the 215,000 books — collected for the literacy initiative — is impressive, he also said C4G has collected thousands of pounds worth of goods, cards and letters to send to troops overseas.
“All of it overall is very successful,” he said. “For our student veterans, we’ve given out several thousand dollars’ worth of scholarships. But my main goal was [never] just military — I wanted students to get involved because that was a big issue I had in trying to find community service opportunities.”
Youngblood’s junior executive board does just that.
