Black America Cares - Nonprofit Showcase Podcast


Mar 12, 2020

Ep. #8 - Collin Siddell is just 17-yrs old, and is already doing things in his community that helps change young lives. He started a nonprofit called “A Diamond In The Rough” that grew out of his passion to help kids understand things he didn’t necessarily know or understand while growing up. His program teaches entrepreneurship and financial literacy to children in the 3rd – 5th grade. At an age when most young men his age are spending money on sneakers and clothes, Collin is using his money to fund his organization. He also invites local business owners to his classrooms to share their experiences and expertise with the kids in his program. Collin’s passion and true desire to help youth is demonstrated not only through his words, but through his actions. He’s helping to fulfill his dream as he helps young kids discover theirs.
