SCOTT-FOUNDATION THOUGHT AND SERVICE LEADERS KIDS and HORSES
LOVE, PEER SUPPORT & SENSE OF FAMILY
Scott Foundation has big aspirations and a different path for Arizona foster youth. They imagine a journey that changes the face of humanity and inspires their kids to be their absolute best today while making tomorrow’s world a much better place for all. They imagine an education and societal system focused on the power of community rather than competition; and they imagine a world where children are taught we are not separate, but instead, we are all a part of something much bigger than ourselves – we are one.
Scott Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that invests in the future of Arizona foster youth who wish to make the world better than they found it. The foundation produces year-round experiential programming that highlights, inspires and educate youth on the importance of social emotional well-being, while mindfully developing their heart and purposeful career path.
WHAT DO YOU LEAVE BEHIND? What kind of person do you want to be? Life/Legacy Plan – What is the history of your future? How can you make the world better than you found it?
Motivated by tragedy, youth transform to find their true self and become self- supporting, successful, community-minded, “compassionate people”.
Colleen Walski, Former Intel Manager, turned entrepreneur, who’s founded a philosophical service learning organization that also serves the social emotional well-being of youth in the Arizona foster care system; free of charge.
Colleen’s soulful story of resilience and purpose began on her intended journey of re-building hope after her only son, Scott tragically passed. The transformative power of selfless service is revealed as she finds the Universe has oddly aligned the destiny of many to make an inspiring impact that continues to unfold and enrich the fortune of Scott’s legacy and her own!
Frustrated by traditional thinking of the nonprofit business model, health and crisis intervention statistics at an all-time high, a failing education system, and inadequate support for children’s social services, Colleen mindfully surrounds herself with present Thought Leaders, Change-Makers, Philanthropists and Executives that like to take action, and begins serving the market in a way that it’s never been served before.
Colleen is as a very results-driven and active community member, providing ongoing leadership in humanitarian services to local youth programs with ongoing commitment to increase awareness for peace and support of community partnerships.
