On August 23, Ian Somerhalder had this to tweet. ‘Atlanta-area middle and high school students! Check out this opportunity to be a part of something AMAZING! Isfoundation.com/news/ufactor-p….
The Ian Somerhalder Foundation is holding the U Factor on November 2, 2013 at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel in Georgia. The U Factor will help you identify “Ur Passion, Cultivate Ur Talent, Amplify Ur Purpose, and Create Ur Future.’
This is a special project that will help formulate the teen programs for the ISF. Qualified adults will lead them in test projects that will help them find their U Factors. This will be a reciprocal learning experience for both teens and adults. Enlightened adults will share their knowledge with the teens who will give feedback on what works best for them. The goal of this project is to have the means for teens to have their questions answered about their U Factors and how to best serve the planet.
The ISF is looking for nominations of deserving teenagers and they say it the best. ‘We believe that when an individual develops empathy, determination and confidence in their own ability to improve the lives of living things they are much more likely to use their skills in a way that makes the world a better place-for all of us.’
The link for nominations is isfoundation.com/ufactor-nominations-form. You will be informed if your teen has been selected. Parents must give signed consent to attend.
