2017 MobSTIR App. video from Ian Somerhalder Foundation on Vimeo.

The Ian Somerhalder Foundation's MobSTIR Program is for kids and teens 17 and under who want to get their hands dirty and get involved with ISF for a year long volunteer opportunity. "MobSTIR" stands for Members Of the Board who want to STIR things up! At ISF we KNOW that the voices of the youth are what we need to listen to, so we have you involved in all different aspects of ISF - from writing, designing, brainstorming, project planning, fundraising, grants, social media - whatever YOU are passionate about, let's do something about it TOGETHER. You will be with a group of other kids and teens who are volunteering too, as well as our MobSTIR Alumni Program of youth who have already been MobSTIRs and are still actively involved with ISF.

Check out some of our other articles to see what the MobSTIRs 2016 are up to! Does it look like something you would like to jump in and do? Apply and tell us all about YOU and why you want to make an impact on our Planet and Creatures. Why do you think that youth are the most important change makers? What do you want to change?
