Amway is dedicated to giving individual entrepreneurs the resources and support to become successful independent business owners. Through Amway's Who Cares Challenge, the company is empowering service-oriented youth in the same way by providing them the resources, mentoring and funding they need to give back to their communities.  

Over the next 10 weeks, Amway will be collecting contest entries from teens and young adults ages 13 to 22 across the United States and Canada. Applicants will be asked to share their stories of leadership in local community service.

"As we join Free The Children in celebrating the first We Day here in the U.S., we're pleased to offer a fresh opportunity to young people passionate about service through Amway's Who Cares Challenge," said Tanios Viviani, Regional President for Amway North America, who announced the contest on stage at We Day earlier today. "The contest will allow young people to share their story and continue on the path to making the world a better place."

This year marks the 10 th anniversary of Amway's global commitment to helping youth around the world. Since 2003, Amway's employees and business owners have joined forces to help more than 10 million children, logging over 2.7 million volunteer hours and raising $190 million dollars for children's causes worldwide.

"With our mission of empowering youth to be the change they want to see in the world, Free The Children is excited to partner with Amway to honor young people dedicated to making a difference in their communities," said Craig Kielburger, co-founder of Free The Children. "We look forward to hearing the inspiring stories submitted by youth who enter Amway's Who Cares Challenge: Youth Leadership Contest over the coming weeks."
