Empowering Communities Through Education.
My nephew Will Breidenbach will be remembered. His final words to me were about doing something important with horticulture.
He will not be forgotten because The I Will Projects was created in his memory. I could say it was because he was the first baby I ever held, or because he struggled from mental illness issues. He never really got to live his life.
But it’s so much more. Memorials can create awareness.
Those of us who carry the torch are thankful for the group of individuals who find strength in camaraderie. It is through working for a cause and becoming our best selves that we are able to enact systematic change that moves The I Will Projects to a more complete organization, ready to assist when we are allowed to be involved with repairing our earth.
During the early years, set backs were difficult but we were able to continue because all of us believed in our mission. Our extraordinary team has kept working and persevering through every adversity, even the Covid shutdown.
Our organization could not have survived the past 13 years without the support of like- minded individuals and state, national and international leadership.
Our journey continues. We strive to make our earth a place to be treated with respect. With that goal in mind, we must face our challenges with less ego and more care and compassion for all that inhabit it.
It is a privilege to be allowed to pursue our mission and carry forth Will Breidenbach’s legacy, as we build a better world.
And live the mantra, Where There’s Will There’s A Way.
With sincere gratitude, Alice Hill – Founder of The I Will Projects

Become The One Who Is Considered A Hero
Heroes are not giant statues framed against a red sky. They are people who say: This is my community, and it’s my responsibility to make it better. – Tom McCall
LAUNCHING WITH STEAM
The I Will Projects partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Pueblo County to offer S.T.E.A.M. enrichment at clubhouses in southern Colorado. A large grant awarded by NASA provided 150 youth participants with their own aquaponics grow kit, live fish and 6 weeks of live and virtual instruction from IFIZ educators.
