Founder & President

Will Be There Foundation was founded in 2017 by Aditi Bagepalli, currently a senior at Dougherty Valley High School in San Ramon, CA. She is the Charter President of Interact Club of San Ramon Valley, a community-based volunteer club sponsored by Rotary Club and the first community-based Interact Club in Rotary District 5160. She was the Student Founder and Coordinator of the prestigious GATE Program at Windermere Ranch Middle School, San Ramon, CA. She has been involved in volunteering, designing, and implementing unique and life-changing programs that include topics in Leadership, STEM, Journalism, and Entrepreneurship. More than 2500 students have participated in programs designed by Aditi.

In this fast-changing world, surrounded by devices and with fewer opportunities for human interaction, Aditi believes teenagers need more help, support, and encouragement to be a part of an active community and to become better leaders in the future. She wants to be the change agent that connects parents with their teenaged children, teenaged peer groups, and the community at large. Aditi has also won numerous awards including the President’s Volunteer Service Award (Gold), the Rotary International Presidential Citation, and the Women Empowerment, Leadership to name a few.
