Bronx principal gives millennials a chance to give back

THE BRONX -

A Bronx woman is providing the opportunity for millennials to give back to people in other countries.

Success Academy assistant principal Chandell Stone started the service organization Destination Teach – which gives millennials the chance to travel abroad and volunteer in undeserved schools. 

Stone says “100 percent of our travelers are people of color” – addressing what she calls a lack of a diverse presence in volunteer programs. 

Stone believes Destination Teach should expand to help more communities worldwide.

"I know for a fact that this program definitely needs to continue and we need to find ways to reach more of our people and have them on this journey," said Stone.
