“Time to make a royal difference!
On Wednesday, The Prince’s Trust — a charity led by the Prince of Wales — officially launched in the U.S. at an event hosted by American Idol judge Lionel Richie. The charity is aimed at increasing access to education, employment and training for young leaders.
‘I was mentored by a village of people in Tuskegee, Alabama. I had people who kept saying to me “failure is not an option.” And that’s exactly what our young people get from the Prince’s Trust,’ Richie said in a press release.
‘I can now make a difference in the lives of young leaders around the world,’ the 71-year-old added.
The U.S. charity will be led by CEO Jessica Greer Morris.
‘Our goal over the next year is twofold: To create a conduit for US citizens to support our work around the globe and to bring the very same program transforming the lives of young people abroad to the United States,’ she said.”
