Carlos McDonald, the founder of the World Changer Society, is a former youth in care. After travelling from one foster home to another, he eventually came to be 18 years old, and was faced with the same circumstances as other youth in care, the aging-out process.
He had eventually joined street gangs by the time he aged out. Carlos strongly believes that his mentor (his Child and Youth worker) was and is the positive influence he needed to gain control of his life and make the changes necessary.
Later in life, through several mentorship attempts – Carlos came across a youth in need of a mentor – Matt, who turned out to be Carlos’s first mentee, and prototype for the future of the World Changer Society!
