Lynn Schreiber Price '77 MEDIA

2014 University of Illinois Alumni Humanitarian Award

Lynn Schreiber Price '77 MEDIA is honored for her staunch advocacy of youth in foster care and her dedication to reconnecting separated siblings. Her own childhood experience as a youth in care who was separated from her older sister motivated Price’s life work as a social entrepreneur, coach and motivational speaker. While working as a court-appointed advocate, Price discovered that 75 percent of the nearly 600,000 youth in the U.S. foster care system are separated from at least one sibling; the finding spurred her in 1995 to found Camp To Belong, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a safe haven where separated siblings can spend quality time together at summer camps. The camps, spread across the U.S. and Canada, have become the cornerstone of a year-round program to change the way the child welfare system and communities view, preserve and support sibling relationships. An international lecturer and author of two books, Price has received numerous accolades for her work, including the Points of Light President’s Service Award, presented to her in 1998 by President Bill Clinton, and the 2000 Use Your Life Award from Oprah Winfrey’s Angel Network. Price’s impact as a leading social entrepreneur was recognized by Ashoka United States, which named her one of its Fellows in 2005.
