If It Takes a Village, Build One: How I Found Meaning Through a Life of Service & 100+ Ways You Can Too
In this motivational keynote speech, Malaak Compton-Rock offers audiences insightful and practical advice on getting yourself and others involved in charities. Far from being sanctimonious, Compton-Rock provides audiences with a how-to guide on everything from finding the right volunteer opportunity or integrating a life of service into our youth, to researching charities and how to start a nonprofit. Drawing on her own experience as a the founder of a nonprofit, her work with inner-city youth and service during the aftermath of Katrina, Compton-Rock reminds us all that giving back is ultimately easier and infinitely more fulfilling than we thought it could be. Warm, honest, and accessible, If It Takes a Village, Build One is a presentation that will empower, motivate and energize your audience to leave a lasting and positive impact in their community.
Raising Giving Children in a Global World
Malaak Compton-Rock flew inner city youths from Brooklyn, NY, to South Africa, where one in five people has AIDS or HIV and many homes in its shanty towns are headed by orphaned children. She hopes that by showing these youths the rampant poverty in South Africa, this experience will empower them to give back to their community while encouraging them to value their lives in the US where things such as free education are taken for granted.
