Jason Torreano of Inkululeko is a champion of transformative educational opportunities for South African youth. A Department of Basic Education report shows that in South Africa less than a third of students finish grade 12 by the age of 18, and Inkululeko seeks to change that in a big way by meeting tomorrow's leaders where they're at today.

He is looking for UB students to contribute through tutoring, mentoring, website and social media development, grant writing or other types of engagement based on interest.
