2010 Recipient

David Schenirer

Sacramento | 18

2010 Award Recipient

David became aware that without a strong, spirited community where his Sacramento peers felt engaged, they were falling victim to drugs and gangs. He answered this challenge with VIBE, a sustainable youth-led “urban lounge” providing academic, professional, and social resources such as homework help, resume writing assistance, and community building events to support teens negotiating the developmental challenges all youth face and providing resources to those lacking them in their home and neighborhood environments.

VIBE Youth Lounge

VIBE Youth Lounge provided academic, professional, and social resources so teens had a place to stay away from drugs, gangs, and violence.
