WHO: Best known for her Teen Choice Award-nominated role as underage mother Amy Juergens on ABC Family skein “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” Shailene Woodley will next appear on the big screen opposite George Clooney in Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants.”

WHAT: All It Takes is an organization that Woodley and her mother, Lori Woodley, started in order to inspire ideas that empower action in simple daily ways that make schools, communities and the world continue to grow into cleaner, safer, healthier places. Working with individuals ranging from the youth to the elderly, All It Takes supports innovative programs that make a naturally profound difference.

WHY: “I had always wanted to start an organization, but I never knew what (kind). My biggest passion in life is helping the environment, and my mom’s biggest passion is anti-bullying and teaching kids to love each other and seek help if they feel the situation requires it. So she wanted to start a anti-bullying organization, and I wanted to start an environmental organization, but neither one of us knew how to go about that. My mom came up with the name All It Takes. I would say it’s more of a movement than a charity.”

WHAT’S NEXT: With the org launching Sunday, All It Takes’ inaugural youth conference will take place Oct. 28-30.
