IMPACT JUNKIE will be partnering with “If You Really Knew Me” on an international venture trip to Kenya on July 1-July 10 with high school students and chaperones recruited through If You Really Knew Me Program and their team led by Nathaniel Rios. The overall goal of IMPACTJUNKIE is to empower individuals to move towards sustainability through means of starting an impact venture and bring impact to your venture where they find most success and facilitating relationships/partnerships with the resources needed to do so and above all, do no harm.

If that’s you, then we have the best first step - let’s go! Take an epic trip to Kenya this summer! Kenya is full of opportunity to start future venture businesses, make impact using your superpowers, discover more about yourself and your future and see the world change right before your eyes.
