Who we are

 

PENdulum Global is the world's first cohesive youth empowerment initiative. By using the power of young adults who act as long-term mentors to vulnerable adolescents around the world, PENdulum Global strives to both motivate these adolescents and support them in their service or entrepreneurial activities. 

PENdulum Global is a student-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Starting as just a conceptual model for youth empowerment, PENdulum Global now works in multiple locations to mentor adolescents as they overcome various circumstances within their communities.

Volunteers are the backbone of PENdulum Global, using skills gained in the Webinar Training series. Volunteers engage their local communities through educational and fundraising events relating to youth empowerment, connect one on one with a vulnerable adolescent in a developing country as mentors, and help PENdulum Global provide the support these adolescents need to make their ideas into tangible projects.
