Jason Lin

Los Altos, California

Jason Lin, 16, of Los Altos, Calif., a sophomore at The Harker School, organized and emceed a benefit concert for the Tahirih Justice Center, raising $31,000 to help 300 asylum seekers escape gender-based violence and expanding awareness of the plight of these women and girls. Jason led an entirely student-based team of volunteers to produce the sold-out event, including a violinist from Juilliard and a communication team that produced a website, video and brochure.
