Greg Weatherford II oversees the Allstate Foundation’s national efforts to empower youth to succeed and lead. This mission is close to Greg’s heart. At the age of 12, he started his first nonprofit to empower his peers to create their own service-learning opportunities. By age 17, he grew this nonprofit into a national organization with multiple chapters that served over 7,500 students. Following this experience, Greg created and sold a for-profit company and served in leadership roles at Fortune 50 companies, higher education institutions, and nonprofits. Because of the important opportunities and experiences he was afforded as a youth, Greg strongly believes in creating programs and initiatives that empower youth with the tools and skills to be successful changemakers.
