Schwartz is the executive director of Invest in Kids, which she founded in 1998 to provide scholarships and mentors to low-in- come, at-risk youth. An earlier nonprofit she created raised public awareness about the entertainment industry's negative influence in shaping children's desires, behaviors, and values. Schwartz has spoken in over 160 venues on these issues and been interviewed for dozens of newspaper and magazine articles, radio shows, and television programs. For this work, she won the Thread of Hope Award in 1996, and the Women of Achievement Community and Human Services Award in 1997. Stoddard's high-energy approach to creating community has included team-building in the corporate realm and donating numerous hours as a tutor, mentor to young people, and board member of Invest in Kids. An English and citizenship instructor at a community college, Stoddard worked as a marketing consultant at Pacific Gas and Electric from 1990 to 1996, where she founded and edited an inter-utility newsletter on energy conservation and promoted volunteerism through employee channels. From 1988 to 1990, Stoddard facilitated workshops in the former Soviet Union for Russian and Ukrainian teachers of English, and established pen- pal relationships between Russian and American children.
