Jordan Schwartz ’15 spoke at TEDxYouth@TheBeltline, an independently organized TED event, in November 2012. She was chosen as a speaker for her work with the Children’s Bilingual Theater, a small student-run nonprofit based in the metro-Atlanta area, which she founded in 2004.
During her talk, Schwartz shared her lifelong love of the theater and spoke about the challenges and rewards as founder and artistic producer of the Children’s Bilingual Theater. She focused on theatrical and literacy outreach and emphasized that when everyone brings what they have to the table, the show is a success.
Recently, Schwartz was honored for her work by the Association of Fundraising Professionals at the 28th annual National Philanthropy Day in November.
