"Recently named to the Forbes Impact 30 as one of the 30 leading social entrepreneurs worldwide, Jill Vialet is the Founder & CEO of Playworks, a national US non-profit organization that improves school climate, reduces bullying and increases student engagement in school through play and physical activity."
Katrina Fried's new book, Everyday Heroes: 50 Americans Changing the World One Nonprofit at a Time, profiles 50 leading changemakers and social entreprenuers in the U.S. In the book, Fried explores principles of changemaking (or the 'new rules of everyday heroisim') including out with charity, in with partnership; crazy is good; and you're never too young (or old). Changemakers Fried highlights include Ashoka Fellow Jill Vialet, founder of Playworks, who comments: "If you don't succeed as a for-profit, someone doesn't get rich. If you fail as a nonprofit, someone gets sick; someone starves; some child gets an inferior education." Through working on the book, Fried learned that "there is no contribution too small or insignificant."
