“We are thrilled to see the We Act program expand into the Greater-Sacramento area. Since 2007, youth involved in We Act have achieved remarkable social change raising $45 million and volunteering 14.6 million hours for more than 1,000 local and global causes. I can’t wait to see the impact the students across the Greater-Sacramento area will achieve.”  – Craig Kielburger, co-founder Free The Children.
