Students harness their talent, passion and commitment to reduce infant and maternal mortality.
We engage, encourage and support students to organize, plan and implement efforts for the greater good of serving mothers and babies who lack access to quality healthcare. Students at the University of Notre Dame have embraced this mission and vision and are taking action.
Supporting and Affirming Student-Leaders
Our Driving Force for Good
University of Notre Dame Students Leading the Way: Alexandra Hicks and a talented, dedicated and enthusiastic group of student-leaders make up the Executive Leadership Team for the “Games for Change Club” at the University of Notre Dame. This team of inspired students are launching the national effort to create awareness and raise funds to reduce infant mortality through the mission of Students for Healthy Moms and Babies Foundation.
Developing philanthropy, community, and business leaders now and into the future: Students are provided with the opportunity to learn and apply leadership, business planning and project management skills. Students essentially operate a small business as they take ownership for leading, organizing, planning and implementing their business plan. That plan includes creating awareness, communicating through print and social media, raising money, recruiting volunteers, marketing, and managing finances. This experience is an impressive credential on student resumes and helps prepare them for life after graduation.
Throughout their philanthropic experience with the Foundation, students are introduced to guest speakers who are business and humanitarian professionals who model philanthropic and community leadership. Students learn from these leaders about the importance and impact of philanthropy, how to get involved, and to make impact.
The outcome from this Foundation student leadership program, is that students are prepared and encouraged to pursue community and volunteer leadership roles beyond graduation. Students learn from a real-life experience of service by helping to reduce infant and maternal mortality, and improving access to healthcare for moms and babies, by raising funds to provide telemedicine and transportation solutions.
We invite student organizations in universities, colleges and high schools to join this cause for the moms and babies who need our help and support. Please join us by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
