Community donations helped leader Chris Suggs and ten others learn about how “simple” ideas can be the best.

“We learned a lot  about different ways to change the world different initiatives that  have already been started to improve society all over the world really so it was very powerful,” said Suggs.

“Sometimes people are so stubborn, and they can’t figure out a way to get out of the issue, and get fed up, and you just give up, and that’s what I found most interesting,” said Erykah Cooke.

The group right now focuses on high schoolers but tells WNCT  it plans to share these new ideas with middle schoolers soon.
