Who are we?
Team Change was started in the fall of 2012. It came about as part of LearnServe International, an organization that helps teens start nonprofit organizations. Haley wanted to do something with water, and Sirah wanted to work with an epidemic disease. One fateful Metro ride, they started talking and created Team Change. The awesome advisers at LearnServe helped Haley and Sirah form their idea into a reality. In December 2012, they pitched the program to a panel of judges, parents, and students. The rest, as they say, is history.
