When we’re inspired by an interest, it’s hard to merely watch passively. When we’re passionate about our subject, we immerse in the facts, revel in the research—but we don’t stop there. When we’re fired up to fix something, we have that feeling: “I can’t just stand here, I have to do something!”

So it is with Aurora. Our supporters and volunteers are critical to advancing our mission. We hope you will make a donation to support our work. But we hope you will also spread the word, use our research, and help us make future events happen. We’re eager to read your nominations of teens who have already started working to help make their communities stronger. We look forward to collaborating with you.

Take a look at the volunteer form that appears when you click Get involved: it gives many specific suggestions for how you can help, and we invite your energy and ideas.
