Compassionate Young Leaders Program via Crowdrise
January 20, 2012
During the year, students will also participate in several organized workshops focusing on leadership, fundraising, and preparation for volunteering abroad. These workshops will be offered by the Flourish Foundation and the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT. At the end of the school year, students will take a trip to Ladakh, India and collaborate with Ladakhi high school students in implementing programs that promote sustainability, education, and health. The Compassionate Young Leaders Program will culminate in an organized community presentation where students will reflect upon their experiences throughout the year.
It is our belief that compassion can be nurtured at the deepest level when cultivated inwardly through contemplative practices and outwardly through community service efforts.
