Social Impact

At a time when our world has been turned upside down in so many ways, we need to explore innovation and impact in the areas that matter the most…those that affect our overall health, well-being, and life trajectories. Change is Bold is dedicated to seeking out and supporting social impact efforts that hold unique promise in positively disrupting the overwhelming challenges we are facing as a society.

There are three (3) distinct underpinnings to our work:

  • Collaboration
  • Innovation
  • Efficacy

As a nation, we have spent too much, for too long, without acceptable results. It is time to dig deep, come together, and approach things differently. Change is Bold… and without it we will continue to see too much despair and unmet potential.

The time is now!

The 513 Village Coalition seeks to provide transformative learning and development hubs across Greater Cincinnati with all the essential tools and resources needed to support the overall growth of our children and families.

It is a passionate group of non-profit and for-profit leaders who are fiercely dedicated to the best future for our youth. We have come together to make change, and to most efficiently and effectively provide opportunities, resources and services to the children and families of Greater Cincinnati.

Our intent is to supplement the local school districts’ efforts to ensure that our children’s overall growth and educational experiences are maximized.

The 517 Village Coalition supports one-to-one mentoring relationships striving to help youth work through difficulties, see the world through a more comprehensive lens, and help them become the best versions of themselves.

Across Greater Lansing, thousands of kids are facing incredible challenges due to isolation, stress, and anxiety. Statistics have shown that a caring adult is the single most impactful influence on the social-emotional health of a child and their future trajectory.

The Discovery Series is the premiere offering under the Rewriting Futures Initiative of Change is Bold. It is a proven tool that was specifically designed to help kids build a solid social emotional foundation, develop and nurture healthy relationships with caring adults and provide
prevention and early intervention in response to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). This unique platform is welcoming and accessible while also drawing out human connection and opportunities to share, learn and grow.
