Nick Bayard has led social impact organizations and programs that have served over 25,000 children, youth, and parents in Washington State, Paraguay, Liberia, and Washington, DC.  He is a graduate of Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and Brown University, a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, an award-winning artist, and an Eagle Scout.  Nick has released six studio albums of original folk and children's music that has been heavily featured on national radio, and he speaks fluent Spanish and Guarani (the indigenous language of Paraguay).  For two years, he hosted a radio show in Paraguay that reached over 100,000 households, and he led the launch of an All Girls Academy in Monrovia, Liberia.  He is the only two-time winner of the Harvard Kennedy School Talent Show and possibly the only person within a 1,000 mile radius who knows how to properly fish with machetes.  Nick currently leads one of the largest youth service organizations in Washington State and represented his city and state to the White House in 2016.  He grew up in Wilmington, Delaware as a shy, asthmatic, underperforming kid.
