Dr. Moss conducts most of his community service initiatives by serving as the Executive Director of an organization that he and some friends founded in 2006 – C.H.A.N.G.E. Volunteers, Inc. C.H.A.N.G.E. is a hybrid 501 nonprofit organization that offers its services to two cohorts:
1) The community by developing socially interactive oriented programs for underserved populations. Its members also support other local nonprofit organizations by participating in their community service endeavors.
2) Its own volunteer members by consciously honing and developing their community leadership skills. The adults achieve this by developing and executing innovative public programs while also serving as mentors to its preteen and teenage members. These younger members attend conferences, workshops, and sessions that empower them with tools to become better leaders and thwart negative influences.
C.H.A.N.G.E. was founded with the target population of its members being African-American males; however, the organization recently expanded to include females and other races in hopes of optimizing its community involvement. As a result, C.H.A.N.G.E. has been able to successfully impact hundreds of citizens in the city of Cleveland, Ohio through its active endeavors.
The mission of C.H.A.N.G.E. Volunteers, Inc. is to empower its members and enhance the image of Greater Cleveland through positive community service initiatives and by participating in youth targeted development programs, workshops and sessions.
C.H.A.N.G.E. Volunteers, Inc. will be recognized as an active organization that hosts and supports community service and empowerment initiatives that cross races, ethnicities and generations, while its members strive to be effective community leaders for the future.
