Shane has inspired thousands of young people to lead positive change by helping connect them with local causes and opportunities.
At the age of 13, Shane experienced a difficult transition into high school. But before long, Shane’s dark freshman year began to take the shape of an uplifting national movement. After weeks of lunches eaten alone and no luck at making new friends, Shane approached his guidance councillor, Mr. Conte, for help. With the help and encouragement of Mr. Conte, Shane was signed up for every club, council and school initiative that remotely resembled his hobbies and interests. Shane found his key to happiness: getting involved. He suddenly had new friends, was enjoying school, and was actually waking up in the morning excited to start each day. Shane wanted to share this amazing feeling. He decided to organize an assembly to inspire his classmates to become engaged in the school community. Little did he know this small school assembly would one day take the shape of an internationally recognized organization: “Count Me In”.
Shane’s passion was contagious and before long students at other schools were anxious to join in. That small school assembly is now the largest youth-run empowerment event of its kind, and has reached out to more than 1 million people across Canada, and other parts of the world.
Feldman is a teenager committed to making the world a better place. With previous clients ranging from the New York’s CRAZE Marketing Conference to the International Student Leadership Conference. Shane has also been acknowledged several times in the Ontario Legislature by MPP Dipika Damerla, who praised the success of Count Me In.
When he’s not working on Count Me In, Shane is speaking at schools, conferences and events, and working with non-profits and corporations to improve their youth engagement strategies.
Bidders on this auction must be able to get themselves to Toronto in order to receive their reward.
Take a walk with Shane while brainstorming big ideas
Shane believes that it is easy to give back to communities locally and abroad. And he enjoys walking! If you're not in Toronto, Shane is willing to do a Skype call as well. He wants to emphasize that your volunteer work doesn't necessarily have to be a project with a charity... it can be about ANYTHING you want to start up or grow. Any project, program, company or organization. Shane really wants to help bring your BIG idea to the next level. The session is one-on-one and will last up to one-hour.
