YouthBuild Newark was recently featured in “Upstanders”, a new Starbucks original web series. The collection of short films, essay, and podcasts shares the stories of ordinary Americans doing extraordinary things to create positive change in their communities.

Episode ten of the video series features Robert Clark, a YouthBuild Boston alumnus who went on to establish a YouthBuild program to help opportunity youth in the city of Newark in 2002.

In the episode, Clark describes his experience as student saying, “They expected that I would be something. And they loved me until I learned to love myself.”
