LearnServe Alum Wins Youth Service Award

Omnia Saed, LearnServe Fellow 2012, was awarded a Youth Service America Summer of Service award for her venture, #RealTalk, which encourages teens to be informed and talk about important issues.

“Teenagers need a place to talk – they want to talk. We just have to give them funnel to do it,” says Omnia.  The recognition came with a $1,000 prize.  Omnia learned about the Summer of Service award through LearnServe.

She was also featured on DC’s ABC7 in their report on 4 local winners of the award.
