Each week MIT Solve is inviting social impact leaders to speak in our First Year Discovery class, "How to Change the World: Experiences from Social Entrepreneurs." But it is so much more than a class! Join us for this free event with free refreshments open to the public to be inspired by incredible leaders. No RSVP needed!

This week, we'll have Alan Khazei, founder of Democracy Entrepreneurs, City Year, and Be the Change. 

Alan Khazei is an American social entrepreneur. He founded Democracy Entrepreneurs, which promotes new change agents who are inventing new ways to engage people in our democracy, and Be the Change, Inc., a Boston-based group dedicated to building national coalitions of non-profit organizations and citizens that promoted advancing issues of national service, fighting poverty and empowering veterans. Previously, Alan served as chief executive officer of City Year, an AmeriCorps national service program engaging 17- to 24-year-olds in a year of service in one of 29 U.S. cities and in Johannesburg, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Khazei co-founded City Year with Michael Brown, his friend and roommate at Harvard College and Harvard Law School.
