Amy Mintz, Founder

Amy Mintz founded the Student Body of America Association, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to provide easily accessible information and resources to educate and support students in achieving an education, and to guide individuals to apply their knowledge and skills to make the best decisions on an individual and societal basis.

Mintz supervises, directs and oversees all operations and affairs of the nonprofit organization and programs, including the Project Pay It Forward program. Project Pay It Forward is a program to foster positive youth development and encourage youth volunteerism through character education curriculum, engaging media and enriching educational materials, interactive platforms for youth involvement and grant opportunities for youth paying it forward.

As President and Director of Student Body of America Association, she successfully led several past programs of the organization, including the Student Body TV platform, which educated the public on America’s challenges with college affordability and its impact on the youth. The Student Body TV program provided several opportunities and resources for individuals faced with the challenges of unaffordable higher education costs and student loan debt, including several scholarships offered by the nonprofit organization to support students in achieving a higher education. Another previous program, CrowdFundEDU, supported students, educators, schools and organizations to raise funds for educational purposes through a crowdfunding platform.
