Echoing Green Fellow Andrew Youn of One Acre
Andrew Youn, 2006 Echoing Green Fellow and founder of One Acre.

I take our tagline, “Think Big. Be Bold. Drive Change.” very seriously. For over twenty-six years we have observed and supported the work of nearly 600 social entrepreneurs who are changing the world in some significant ways. They reinforce our belief that with greater risk comes greater innovation. These Echoing Green Fellows are deliberate risk-takers whose actions often result in bold transformations across sectors. But I also know from experience that being bold is a behavior by no means monopolized by social entrepreneurs.

In fact, the entrepreneurial spirit I often speak of is precisely about tapping into our potential for boldness. What if we all got bold – in our movements, in our thinking, in our values – and made demands of ourselves to take action that goes beyond our fears?

Maybe for you, that moment is now as you look at this roster of incredible opportunities to drive change. Take charge of this moment and walk the walk – take bold steps to find a role that allows you to be part of the next-level change for a big idea that moves you.
