Alex Quian is the Executive Director of 30 Days of Service, a non-profit led by college students he helped create with his mentor, Greg Weatherford. Over the course of July 2019, Quian completed 30 different service projects in 30 days as part of the organization’s efforts to inspire other young people to give back to their community.
A senior at Cornell University studying Information Science graduating in Fall 2019, Quian is naturally drawn to servant leadership and is passionate about helping young people find ways to use their passions and skills to impact their community in positive, rewarding ways. He has a strong passion for entrepreneurship (specifically social entrepreneurship), which began when he was selected for an intensive but lifechanging entrepreneurial internship the summer before starting college, during which he gained a greater love for service and learned invaluable skills relating to communication, program and team development, project management, and more.
Since this transformative experience, Quian has gone on to oversee the development of a multitude of proposals, projects, programs, and businesses for Fortune 50 companies, national community organizations and non-profits, internationally leading educational institutions, and entrepreneurs.
Quian’s current projects include writing a book for children and young adults about his Summer 2019 service project experiences, creating a formal service program that will be shared with K – 12 schools, universities, companies, and other groups, and speaking about his 30 Days of Service experience.
