Originally slated for a Summer 2020 release, in response to the COVID-19 health crisis, Lucas has sped up the launch of IMPACT. The site has been modified to focus solely on pandemic relief virtual volunteer opportunities. It is Lucas’ hope that while we practice social distancing, we don’t lose our ability to support communities and also reach at-risk and isolated people who desperately need our help.
Lucas is a high school junior who proudly serves on his student government, and is passionate about helping to incite genuine enthusiasm for doing good within our communities. In his search for an organization to join as part of his school’s community service graduation requirement, Lucas discovered that it can be hard to find organizations that accept student age volunteers. Lucas has developed a program that alleviates the issues high school students face with securing volunteer work, and he has launched IMPACT.
Lucas’ vision to make a difference in his community has already to come fruition, and this is just the beginning.
We all know it takes a village, and Lucas would like to thank all of the partners and schools who have helped to make this project possible.
