Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area. 

“No matter what happened to you or what you’ve done in the past, it doesn’t define the future trajectory of your life.”

That’s what Erika Grace tells the students of ReStory, a youth mentorship nonprofit she cofounded that pairs young adults with at-risk adolescents, to encourage them to think big and shake their preconceptions of themselves.

During the fledgling nonprofit’s first three-month cycle, ReStory is working exclusively with Manayunk’s CB Community School, which serves older youth in foster care, but plans to add more parter sites in the future.

Learn more about how to get involved from her “Around the Corner” interview with Generocity Editor Julie Zeglen.
