Kalilah Moon is the Executive Director of Drive Change. Drive Change is on a mission to equip NYC-based, formerly incarcerated young people ages 18 to 25 with tools to succeed in the food service industry and life after reentry.
With a 4-month paid fellowship incorporating culinary arts training, leadership development, mental healing support, and placements into living wage jobs, Drive Change is reducing the likelihood of recidivism for their participants — and simultaneously challenging hospitality leaders to develop more equitable workplaces through their Hospitality for Social Justice program.
Stand Together Foundation is committed to breaking the cycle of poverty in America by driving change from within communities. We are building a community of social entrepreneurs who believe in people, work from the bottom up, and unite with anyone to do right. Since 2016, we have committed $120 million and counting to fuel the innovation of nonprofits throughout the country to build stronger, safer communities where all people can learn, contribute, and realize their full potential. Our goal is to help nonprofit leaders maximize their impact to transform more lives out of poverty.
