LOS ANGELES, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Cal Net Technology Group has announced that Founder & CEO Zack Schuler will serve on the board with Young Ambassadors for Opportunity (YAO) Chair Liesel Pritzker to raise awareness for the organization in order to increase the involvement of young, visionary entrepreneurs. YAO, an initiative of Opportunity International, is geared towards engaging young visionaries through its educational programs, fundraising efforts, and networking events, all of which serve to raise awareness and funds for YAO’s initial project of capitalizing a bank in Tanzania.
“I’ve been approached by hundreds of organizations asking for donations, company gift matching programs, and my personal time, but YAO was a standout because of its empowering, business-like approach to the poverty epidemic,” remarked Schuler.
Added Pritzker: “For YAO to be successful, we depend on individuals who have both the business savvy and passion for meeting our ultimate objective: to eradicate poverty. With Zack’s large network of clients and personal contacts throughout Southern California and the U.S., I know that YAO’s name and mission will soon be top of mind among young entrepreneurs, businesses, and other potential partners.”
In addition to Cal Net Technology Group’s official endorsement of YAO, the relationship will serve to accomplish three specific goals:
* Recruit new ambassadors for YAO
* Raise funds to capitalize International bank in Tanzania
* Educate Cal Net’s employees about YAO.
