In 1999, 17-year-old Divine Bradley decided to start a community center for his underserviced Canarsie, Brooklyn neighborhood. After noticing that there were few positive opportunities for youth after school, Divine connected with the community’s youth and began plans for a center to provide an outlet for creative expression. In 2000, the nonprofit organization Team Revolution was created. By 2002, Team Revolution had raised $25,000, which Divine used to convert half of his parents’ home into a community center. Today, Team Revolution is focused on reaching out to children virtually, creating the next generation of community leaders and social entrepreneurs and an empowering educational environment for people in disadvantaged communities.
