Vote for a College Campus Champion of Change finalist:

The A-List - Matt Norris, University of Minnesota

The A-list is a teen hangout based on a revolutionary new approach to youth engagement. Designed to be a one-stop shop for youth, it’s a place where teens can go to get a job, participate in educational afterschool programs, and enjoy fun evening events at night. What makes The A-list unique is that teens themselves actually produce 30% of the revenue to support the organization by selling snacks at our snack bar and making custom screen-printed t-shirts all while helping to keep teens safe. The A-list focuses on three key mission elements—entrepreneurship, education, and personal growth. And as a result of Norris’ efforts, hundreds of teens visit The A-list every week, getting off the street and into a safe and caring environment.
