Today’s spotlight profile brings us to a young man in the Denver area with a track record of success in music, lacrosse, and now philanthropy.
While a pro lacrosse player in a past life, Jon Urbana is now known locally as a coach and co-founder of Next Level Lacrosse Camp in Denver, Colorado. As a defenseman for Villanova lacrosse for many years, he now offers advice and training to talented youth at NLLC, his camp.
We did some reading at his website and learned that Jon has a BA in Economics from Villanova University, which he has used to become the Head of Business Development for Ellipse USA, where he’s been covered on Bloomberg (full story here).
There, he is responsible for the company’s blog, and also has his own. Urbana also oversees the progress in awareness of Ellipse’s IPL and Laser technologies and Marketing Department. As a seasoned entrepreneur through his work at the camp, Jon is no stranger to projects of great importance, which is clear in his side project learning to fly (read more at Aviation Business Gazette), in addition to his charity work. He is spearheading several charity projects currently, including his CrowdRise Fundraiser for the Animal Rescue and Adoption Society and his gofundme fundraiser for Earth Force Inc., which comes neatly packaged with a promo video!
Urbana’s passion for the youth he works with is apparent in all he does, including his Twitter bio snippet, which supports youth charity, Earth Force Inc., a call to action for young men and women to become activists for their local environment. It looks to promote cleaner environments and emphasizes awareness of the natural beauty of the Earth. It’s easy to support this charity in the beautiful Denver area and his campers are involved in promoting clean, clear environments in their home. He hopes to raise $1750 for Earth Force Inc through his gofundme page at https://www.gofundme.com/jon-urbana.
He is busy raising awareness for his campaign on Instagram at the moment so it can reach charitable people and begin to move towards his goal amount. You can share his gofundme page and help get it the attention and donations it deserves on social media.
