CHAMPIONS OF CHANGE was established in 2013 by brothers Jeremiah West (now 13), and Joshua West (now 11), young social entrepreneurs with a mission to empower people of all ages to serve as "Change Agents" who look for opportunities to make a lasting impact within their communities. The West children have recently been featured on the Ellen Degeneres Show, Harry Connick Jr. Show, Good Morning America and was even invited to the White House in 2016 to be recognized by the President Obama for the impact that they have made on the community. Their younger sister, Jordan (8), joined their mission to help others & is having a MAJOR impact on the world in her own "little" way.
