All proceeds will benefit TEDxYouth@ColumbiaSC and youth initiatives in South Carolina.

Asked how collaboration of The On It Foundation and TEDxYouth@ColumbiaSC came about, Calvetta Phair, President of The On It Foundation, stated that she saw an article about Kevin Rabinovich’s work in a blog post by the Black Data Processing Associates, a group with which both are involved.
I contacted Kevin to express my admiration and support for his work with TEDxYouth@ColumbiaSC. We met and the rest is history. I am truly honored to offer any support for this event and believe that our organizations’ alliance will not only benefit the youth in South Carolina, but also provide support for future initiatives…it’s so much bigger than about us,” said Ms. Phair.
