Our mission is to cultivate a movement of purpose-driven, young leaders inspired to create positive social change.
We exist to empower youth to make our world a better place. Social Moguls is a program that joined the Happiness Initiative in December 2011 and will begin serving youth in the Greater Metropolitan Seattle Area beginning in the summer of 2012. Sekai Senwosret, a nonprofit leader who has worked in youth development and education management fields, founded the program. Sekai started Social Moguls because she passionately believes that youth are the only hope for creating a sustainable future. Social Moguls will work with university partners in co-developing an engaging and rigorous out-of-classroom, academic enrichment program for youth in grades 9 and10. The program will be designed to inspire our youth to become change makers and give them the skills that will help them succeed in school and life.
