Volunteer Profile:  Ameet Purohit Ameet is a Senior Consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton who has served as a Coach for the Dream It. Do It. Challenge, a Panelist, and a Panel Moderator in addition to fervently supporting Youth Venture sponsored events.  Ameet became involved with YV because it combined his interests in education with the entrepreneurial work the youth undertake.   He also appreciates YV's volunteer scheduling, which makes it easy for professionals to get involved.  When asked about his experiences with the Dream It. Do It. Challenge,  Ameet said "Over the course of the DDC, I didn't know that I could be so lucky as to see teens use their passion and their desire to become a force for change within their community."  The youth's growth throughout the YV process continually inspires him.  To find out how you can become more involved with Youth Venture, click here.
