MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER

“Zora” meaning “dawn” symbolizes new beginnings and opportunities—a better tomorrow. I found The Zora Foundation with the goal of inspiring more youth to get involved in social justice and the creative arts as they explore their identities and find their places in the world. Through this initiative, we hope to bolster communities and celebrate diversity and individuality by providing youth with the resources and platforms to find their voice through creative mediums.

~ Fiona Huang

AN EVER-GROWING COMMUNITY

Our mission of civic engagement crosses borders as we expand our influences through young activists. Our strength lies in our collective action towards a more engaged and socially-driven population. As a national organization, The Zora Foundation uses our platform to inspire and connect youth leaders, working collaboratively towards meaningful global citizenship.
