Join UJA’s Scarsdale Campaign as we kick off the 2021 Annual Campaign year with Adam Braun, best-selling author, speaker, and entrepreneur. Adam will discuss how he was inspired to start Pencils of Promise, an award-winning organization that has built more than 500 schools around the world, and the skills it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur. He'll inspire us to see that we all have what it takes to make a difference in the world.
This event is intended for donors who make an individual or family gift of $360 or more to UJA’s 2021 Annual Campaign.
Adam Braun’s book The Promise of a Pencil: How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change was a #1 national best seller. He has been named to Business Insider’s 40 Under 40 and Wired Magazine’s 50 People Who Are Changing the World, and was selected as one of the World Economic Forum’s original ten Global Shapers.
