Kruthik Ravikanti is Prudential Spirit of Community honoree
Kruthik Ravikanti, a senior at Alpharetta High School, has been picked as one of the Prudential Spirit of Community State honorees this year. He cofounded a nonprofit organization to help other young people start, fund, and execute their own service projects. Although many young people want to launch their own service projects, as he points out, they often lack the necessary resources, such as the time and the money that it takes to obtain official nonprofit status. To address this problem, the two friends created “Georgia Youth Leaders,” a 501(c)3 organization that provides information and guidance to young social entrepreneurs, allows them to benefit from nonprofit status, helps them procure funding, and supports them in other ways.
