'Creating Awareness in Research and Education' (CARE) is a non-profit aiming to spread awareness of the importance of STEM and education, and seeking to distribute appropriate educational and STEM resources in both the local and international communities, especially in areas where such opportunities are not readily available.
CARE seeks to invest in youth leadership and youth entrepreneurship, building towards a sustainable and resilient future in the community. Through incredible support and partnerships, CARE has been able to positively impact over 6000 individuals.
CARE was founded in 2012 by Sreya Atluri, who graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in 2015 and is currently a Robertson Scholar at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill/Duke University.
Sreya serves as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of CARE, and leads a passionate team of diverse volunteers across the world to fulfill and expand upon CARE's mission.
Sreya has embraced opportunities to study sustainable global development and the institutional barriers that make progress difficult on a international level. She hopes to analyze development within the context of interactions between government, businesses, and society and focus on understanding and promoting economic opportunities that will help people leverage education to build stronger, more resilient communities.
Sreya brings extensive experience as Founder and CEO of CARE, which has been an incredibly rewarding and fulfilling journey. She is a former Executive Director for 'Growth and Inspiration through Volunteering and Education' (GIVE), also a non-profit organization striving to address educational disparities across varying socioeconomic dimensions.
In college, as a Robertson Scholar at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill/Duke University, she is double majoring in B.S. Business Administration and Economics, with a minor in Entrepreneurship.
She studied abroad as a GLOBE Scholar through the Kenan-Flagler Business School, where she spent a semester at Copenhagen Business School, followed by a semester at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, further exploring her passion for international business.
She has pursued her interests on campus through being involved as the Undergraduate Student Body Treasurer, the GLOBE Alumni Relations/Professional Development Chair, the Co-Head of the Senior Class Marshals Life After Carolina Committee, an Adams Apprentice, serving on the Dean’s Advancement Council, the Director of Finance for the Undergraduate Business Ambassadors, an Honors Ambassador for Honors Carolina, and a Buckley Public Service Scholar. She was a former Director of the Robertson Community Coordinators (RCC), and has been involved with other campus organizations and business, leadership, and entrepreneurial initiatives throughout her college journey. Sreya loves spending time with family and friends, dancing, traveling, and giving back to the community.
Sreya explored business and STEM both in school and in the greater community on international, national, state, and county levels during her time at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, and pursued her passion for leadership and actively sought to make an impact in the community.
During her summers, in addition to continuing to expand CARE's impact, mission, and strategy, she has pursued diverse opportunities, ranging from interning at the National Institutes of Health to interning at The Good Work Network to serving as a Teaching Assistant for the TOMODACHI Toshiba Science & Technology Leadership Academy to interning in investment banking as a Sophomore Summer Analyst at Wells Fargo Securities.
