Generation Change collaborates with inspiring facilitators, known as the Dream Team, to lead our programing.
Meet the Dream Team

Kelly believes there is a unique and often unrealized potential to be unlocked within every individual. An experienced educator, Kelly brings this purpose to her work in schools, athletic teams, dorm life and camp.

Her own search to find her purpose led her to creating the Maven Project that now includes camps, a podcast and workshops, all focused on bringing like-minded individuals together to grow, learn and collaborate by sharing their areas of expertise with others.
