Elyas came to SCR with hopes of influencing change. He knows that his involvement is key in helping to make a difference. As part of the SCR Street Team, he has learned to pay close attention to every person and situation as they take place on the streets. Sometimes that means having a knack for engaging people on the street. Most times small gestures like saying hello make all the difference. He’s most passionate about raising awareness about the idea that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. And that is the first step to curing violence worldwide. His most enjoyable moment with SCR has been working alongside his Street Team members and seeing the expressions of the people they meet. He loves to see faces light up when they explain the work they do for the good of the community.
