Inspiring Story: Ulysees Gilbert III

Young Leaders for Change sat down with Ulysees Gilbert III, a linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ulysees is extremely passionate about giving back to his community, helping others, and putting smiles on people's faces however he can. Since being in the NFL, he has been involved with numerous service and charitable initiatives, including the "Pay Away the Layway" program, which helps families pay off the layaway balances of gifts, school supplies, toys, books, games, and clothes for kids. He is currently working on a way to support the front line heroes in his community, but he took some time to share some words of encouragement with us and give advice on how young people can make a difference, even during this time.
