CSR Press Release

University of Phoenix and HandsOn Network Recognize Katy Keck as a University of Phoenix(TM) Volunteer Leader Award Honoree

ATLANTA, Apr. 20 /CSRwire/ - Katy Keck, of New York, NY has been named a University of Phoenix Volunteer Leader Award Honoree, an award given by HandsOn Network and the University of Phoenix to 10 outstanding volunteer leaders in the nation. These leaders motivate others and are catalysts for change in their communities.

The award celebrates the first anniversary of the landmark Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, which authorized the largest expansion of national service in America in decades. Keck will receive $10,000 to donate to the nonprofit organization of her choice.

Every child needs a mentor, and Katy Keck is working hard to make that a reality. Keck is a volunteer leader with Infinite Family (IF), an organization that connects teens and pre-teens in South Africa with adults internationally, using online video-based mentoring.

With an estimated 55 million youth orphaned and affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty in sub-Saharan Africa, Keck felt it was critical to connect a caring adult mentor to children who often grow up alone. She believes that by creating these connections, children will begin to define their lives by what they have to gain, not by what they have lost.

She has been the lead volunteer for Infinite Family since it began. With her professional background in event planning, she has produced all the organization's fundraising events. For each event she pulls together at least 75 volunteers, dozens of sponsors and in-kind donors. Over the course of three years, her efforts have generated more than $200,000 in donations.

As a young organization, IF benefits from Keck's leadership in fundraising, developing marketing and communication tools, and her ability to recruit volunteers and mentors. Through her leadership, she has inspired her friends, family and business partners to become active change agents, positively impacting youth in South Africa.

IF's leveraging of technology to connect adults around the globe to youth growing up alone in Africa is an inspiring step towards ensuring that every child has a mentor. That is why Katy Keck is a 2010 University of Phoenix Volunteer Leader honoree.
