India Hayes has volunteered domestically and internationally for more than a decade. Assisting the homeless resonates personally with her because she has seen firsthand the effect of homelessness on citizens of Atlanta. She recently founded Mini City to directly assist the homeless using her skill set as a tech designer. Hayes knows the importance of clear, effective communication and sustainable efforts. That is why she utilizes her design skills whenever she can for social good and sustainability. She works directly with homeless shelters within Atlanta to further their mission and also find innovative ways to empower all people, particularly women, in shelters. Hayes feels that when you empower women, whether it be within the US or overseas, an entire community is transformed. Mothers, daughters, and female leaders carry on traditions and educating, aiding and informing women is something that Hayes believes will make a community more sustainable and holistically sound. Hayes is a firm believer in volunteer efforts being feasible, viable and most importantly desired by communities in need.

This Impact talk is presented in collaboration with Serve-Learn-Sustain.
