During a one-day Be The One Program at Mabton Jr/Sr High School in Mabton, Washington, a student stepped up to the plate for his community with a vision of making it better. As he explained his desire to see his peers show pride in their hometown, he laid the foundation for a thrilling community development and clean up project that took place on May 3rd.

Ivan was recently on the news to shed some light on the project, which has in turn sparked interest in students from surrounding communities to come and join him. As a result, this past Saturday, several students from the local community helped paint over graffiti, pick up trash, pull weeds, and more.

Adrian, an Academic Specialist at Northwest Community Action Center says…

We are trying our best to follow up with students who attended the workshop Consuelo provided.  We hope to keep the fire burning in their hearts and to make some big changes in the school.

With Ivan’s courageous leadership, his team of classmates and school supporters have the brilliance and capacity to work miracles in their community, one block at a time. We stand with The Ivan Project and these promising young leaders of tomorrow.
