BYkids Founder and Executive Director, Holly Carter, and BYkids film director of I COULD TELL YOU ‘BOUT MY LIFE, Mike Martin, present at PBWC’s Conference for Good in San Francisco talking about the work they did together to let Mike tell his story and reflect on his incarceratation on Rikers Island and the affect it had on his life.
The conference features eight women-founded, women-led nonprofits that provide vital services to underserved women and girls in the greater Bay Area. The conference brings leaders, pathfinders and trailblazers who are creating a shared vision of equal opportunity for all.
“Your BYkids keynote presentation with Mike had a deeply profound impact on our audience; leaving them inspired and determined to apply the messages you shared for their own professional development and personal growth. Your devotion and commitment to underserved youth, and the importance of hearing their voices and giving them a platform to share so that we can learn of their stories spoke volumes to our attendees which was clear in their feedback. You may have seen the real-time responses in the live chat, but if not, the statements were wonderfully positive. Your contribution to the day was so very important and much appreciated—our audience was truly engaged and energized!” said Dominica C. Anderson, PBWC President and Board Chair.
