In an article entitled ‘Don’t
worry Canada, we will be there’, the CBC mentioned DreamNow and our
Occupation: Change the World project as an example of an organization that is
making a difference in the life of Gen Y’ers.
“This is a generation after all that has been "raised on volunteer trips abroad, climate change on TV and everything 'save the world,' " says Dev Aujla, 24, who would know.
Aujla is one of those dynamic young leaders, the founder of DreamNow, an organization that seeks to find ways for young people to make money and change the world at the same time.” ...
"I think because society judges engagement in policy debate either through the political process or benevolence, much of the work twenty-somethings are doing goes under the radar," argues Aujla. And he's absolutely right.
The reality is today's youth have a heightened understanding of the interconnectivity of the problems we face and are attempting to find small, digestible chunks that we can relate to and work with to bring about change.
