HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

As a small nonprofit, PGK can only host so many Create the Change® Days, but when individuals and communities come together to plan their own, we multiply the impact we can have together. You can help us touch the lives of thousands more by leading your own community effort to #CreateTheChange!

DESCRIPTION

PGK's Create the Change® Days take place only once a year, but you can #CreateTheChange any day in your own community. With the help of the PGK team, plan your own mini Create the Change® Day and make some good happen!


ITEMS NEEDED

Varies based on projects selected


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Strong organizing skills are needed to put a day like this together, but with a little help from an adult - and the PGK team - teens/families can take the lead on a meaningful day that benefits many!
