Dear Professional: 

 

Our organization is seeking a team of World Changers to work with young adults on the front lines. We are looking for those who feel that they have learned a lot throughout their career, achieved much success, and are at the point in their lives where they want to give back to others.  They are not perfect people; however, they value the chance to learn from their mistakes and impart those lessons onto others.  These are individuals who care about the next generation of leaders. They don’t want to just sit back and watch, but rather in action, desire to pave the way for others.  They believe in the power of giving back through time, talent, and treasure for the sake of long-term positive change and sustention. 

 

Are you what we are looking for?  Are you someone that cares about legacy, purpose, and the ability to make a difference beyond the average person?  If you are inspired by what you have read, imagine what you could do if you gave yourself the permission to pay it forward and live out your leadership dot in the world.  Join us by volunteering to become a Legacy Mentor and complete the application process.  We are a team of leaders dedicated to advancing the lives of young adults throughout the city. 

 

We look forward to reviewing your application!

 

Leading for Change, 

Everett Gutierrez Jr.
