30 Under 30 Initiative

OCN 30 Under 30  2017 Program

The Orthodox Christian Network received some amazing nominations, which made it quite difficult to only choose 30 individuals to recognize this year. But, we strongly believe we have chosen 30 truly outstanding young people to recognize. 30 Under 30 is an opportunity to show support for and invest in this next generation of trailblazers.  We heard from you about  young entrepreneurs and leaders that exemplify Christian Values in their lives and those lives that they touch in your own communities.  This group of adults are changing the way of our Orthodox Christian Future.

During the campaign, we asked our viewers, fans, and supporters to nominate Orthodox emerging leaders.  OCN searched to find candidates that are women and men featured from your own communities in North America.  Orthodox Christian Network will hold its 1st 30 Under 30 event in 2017. This event recognizes 30 emerging leaders under the age of 30 who demonstrate impact personally and/or professionally through their exceptional leadership in North America.

“The 30 under 30 initiative was an opportunity to show support for and invest in this next generation of trailblazers,” says Eleni. “We wanted to hear from young entrepreneurs and leaders that exemplify Orthodox Christian Values in their lives and the lives that they touch; and this young group of adults are certainly paving the way for our Orthodox Christian future.”

The initiative draws on Orthodox leadership in the fields of medicine, nutrition, science, public policy, social science, humanities, arts and law, among other. There is a mentorship aspect that OCN recognizes will be a valuable stepping stone to career both for the mentee and their mentor. Purchase Tickets HERE.
