Toastworthy Teens - Julien Leitner

Julien Leitner, Archimedes Alliance

Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand, and I can move the Earth.

This Archimedes quote, delivered by Julien Leitner’s 5th grade science teacher, is what led to the now 14-year-old launching his own charity. That one notion made Julien, who accompanied his parents on volunteer outings even as an infant, realize that “there [have] to be a billion other people like me who want to make a difference, but feel they can’t…what if everyone just pooled their resources?”

His goal for Archimedes Alliance is to get 1 million people to donate $2 each and then to donate the proceeds to “a small charity with visible impact on the local community.”

I have a feeling Julien himself is going to have a visible impact…on the world.
