Grounded in the belief that every mission is possible when we work together, Mission Possible was established in 2010 by technology entrepreneur and philanthropist, Mary Moran, who continues to serve as Chief Chair. Since its inception, Mission Possible has been committed to promoting the arts, artists and filmmakers through the creation of the Bright Minds Film Festival and has recently established Bright Minds Films, youth created PSA’s for students of all ages to participate. To date, Mission Possible has engaged youth, entire schools, community members and corporate sponsors in humanitarian, educational and environmental projects around the globe, often introducing innovative technologies when applicable.
“Fear of failure is the thief of dreams.” — For 10 years, Mission Possible Foundation’s mission statement has been, “What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”
“The experience of having a hope fulfilled can affirm the belief that any dream is possible. It is the cultivation of this belief that not only can become one’s foundation for facing hardship but can also spark the desire to do something purposeful and positive ultimately inspiring others to do the same.”
~Sivia Dreyfuss, CEO & Chief Connection Officer
Mission Possible Foundation is PROactive when it comes to meaningful teen engagement. In prioritizing the needs of youth first, we inspire connections between companies, nonprofits and community members to engage youth as partners in supporting worthy causes. In-so-doing, Mission Possible becomes a creative fundraising hub for charitable giving, orchestrating resources and efforts to better create long-term effective solutions to relevant issues. Mission Possible ultimately strives to build community by creating opportunities for youth to reach their full potential and help enable organizations to maximize their marketing dollars while at the same time make the greatest possible impact.
WHO WE ARE
Mission Possible members are a passionate group of artists, educators, executives, marketers, mentors, musicians, parents and students who are committed to making a positive difference in the world. A common thread we share is our passion for prevention of youth addiction.
As one simple uninformed choice can lead a young person to becoming a lifelong addict, especially with regards to nicotine, we were motivated to design OUR PASSION PROJECT ‘4HUMANiTY – Helping Unite Mankind Against Nicotine in The Youth’. We’ve created a prevention awareness brand and ‘out-of-the-box’ multimedia campaigns with the belief that one act of prevention can make an impact for a lifetime.
WHAT WE DESIRE & INTEND FOR OUR YOUTH
WHAT WE AIM TO ACHIEVE
Empowering youth to develop bonds to their community, a sense of purpose and to see themselves as having valuable contributions to make, increasing the likelihood of their avoiding risky behaviors, especially those that can lead to substance use disorder.
