The Power of Opportunity: An Interview with Alan Khazei•
By Bobbi Silten,
The first time I met Alan Khazei, founder and chief executive officer of Be the Change, Inc. and co-founder of City Year, I knew he was a unique and imaginative leader who has boldly championed the power of positive change and the importance of creating opportunities for economic and social advancement.
Over the last seven years I’ve had the chance to learn more about Alan through our shared interest in community, and I’ve continued to be inspired by his unwavering commitment to bettering the world, whether through programs for national service or policies to address poverty and youth unemployment.
Following the National Opportunity Summit on September 10, I had a chance to sit down with Alan to talk about an issue we’re both passionate about: youth employment.
