In many ways Mary Pat Hector is like your average 13 year old. She goes to school, likes to shop and hang out with friends. However, Mary Pat is playing on a much larger playground in life as the founder & president of Youth In Action USA. Filled with frustration by hearing stories of youth violence on the news, Mary Pat said “enough is enough” and decided to take action. Youth In Action is a non-profit organization that was founded by Mary Pat in 2008 (when she was 10 yrs old). Through Youth In Action USA, Inc. Mary Pat encourages children to become change agents in their communities through volunteerism, peace rallies, and trainings on community advocacy. The organization is rapidly growing nationwide & there are now seven chapters in states such as: Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, New York, Florida, Washington, and Missouri. Mary Pat enjoys writing about social issues and she is the youngest blogger for the Russell Simmons, GlobalGrind.com website. She also works on community youth initiatives with leaders such as Al Sharpton, Russell Simmons and Dennis Muhammad. In addition to winning awards and accolades nationwide for her community work, Mary Pat was recently honored by President Barack Obama for her philanthropic contributions through Youth In Action.
Mary Pat has big dreams for her life, but she says that she is currently embracing the moment and enjoying her youth. Mary Pat’s story is an inspiration to both children & adults. Seeing a 13 year old impact the world in such a major way leaves no one with an excuse as to why they can’t do something to make a difference in their own community. It was a privilege for me to interview this young lady who has a youthful spirit with an old soul. During our interview, Mary Pat Hector speaks about her work with Youth In Action, and offers advice to encourage other children to dream BIG and make a difference in their communities!
