This video clip was prepared for the Get Involved Initiative by Breauna Dorelus of Connecting the Cause - https://www.connectingthecause.com. After hearing her keynote at the Minnesota Alliance for Volunteer Advancement’s (MAVA) 2021 “Dismantling Inequities” Conference, California scholarship recipients to that conference strongly recommended she be engaged to provide additional materials that could be accessed in the Get Involved Clearinghouse. This YouTube video is available at the Link at the bottom.
