One example of a recent student-organized project Stanford Youth Solutions is a very successful book drive organized by Tejas Pradeep, sophomore at Mira Loma High School. Tejas proposed the idea of a book drive to Stanford Youth Solutions in March 2011 with the original goal of collecting around two-hundred books for the children and youth in their programs. Tejas shattered his goal pulling in nearly 2,000 books from a variety of community supporters.
