- Ryan Nece Foundation is currently accepting applications for the Power of Giving Student Service Program, the foundation's flagship program for youth in Tampa Bay. Designed to enhance and mentor the next generation of servant leaders in the community, the program includes high school students in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.

Through the Student Service Program, participants will engage in a leadership and service curriculum throughout their junior year of high school before transitioning to serve as student mentors during their senior year of high school. The program includes monthly meetings during which time students study a dynamic and engaging curriculum centered on leadership development, self discovery, and team work. Students have the opportunity to meet and hear from various leaders in the community at each meeting. Also, students will participate in many service projects throughout the year, and they'll design and execute their own fundraiser to pay it forward to the next group of students who enter the program after them.
