Young Entrepreneur Series – The Victorian Hands Foundation

March 21, 2012

Nadia Campbell founded the Victorian Hands Foundation when she was 18 in memory of her late aunt, Victoria. After watching a television special on elder abuse, she decided that she wanted to help the seniors in her community.

The organization teaches volunteers how to properly interact with the older population, by familiarizing them with current issues, “terms to know” and role playing.  TVHF volunteers visit and spend time with residents of nursing homes.

Through the organization, youth volunteers work to make seniors feel loved and appreciated through programs like “Adopt a Grandparent.” The program has made a tremendous impact on a lot of people.

Nadia saw a problem and looked for a way to solve it. You can do it too! Visit Secret Millionaires Club Learn & Earn to watch webisodes where a team of kids identifies problems and learns how to solve them, with help from their friend Warren Buffett.
