Our Ambassadors

Yiayia Next Door

Luke and Daniel Paulino

Yiayia Next Door is community of people bound together by our belief in the importance of connection. We plan to harness that support to support initiatives that change and create a future where people experiencing family violence feel supported. The Carton Respects initiative is that very essence of community. We couldn’t be more proud to be arm in arm working towards creating a future where gender stereotypes are diminished and together seek to educate and support students about respect and equality.
