Raising Leaders in Chile
Organized by: Joshua Marshman
Less Than Two Weeks Left
February 27, 2016
EVENT DATE Mar 11, 2016
From March 11th-21st, Ethan Smith and Joshua Marshman are going to attend an international leadership coalition with alumni from Leadership Charlotte and the students from the McColl Business School to work along side the Chilean people. We will be learning from one another what it means to buildup and serve the community around you. Through hands on community service and outreach projects in local businesses and non-profits, we will be raising up the next generation of leaders in Chile and around the world.
OUR HOPES: Our hope for this journey is to connect with the Chilean people and serve them in a new way while also learning how they collaborate as leaders in business and non-profits. We hope to bring back a new international perspective and make the community in Charlotte a better place.
Ethan knew from his early days as a leader that there was an important role to be played that brings about a positive change in the world around him. In his role as the captain of his high school basketball team and student body president, he felt the role of responsibility and the purpose of good planning and communication to bring a bright future into tomorrow. He currently works for the city of Charlotte under city planning and loves that he can be a part of public service. His hope is that this trip will expand the horizons of his perspective and help him to carry out his work in Charlotte with a new international perspective.
Joshua loves traveling and has spent years walking with people from the poorest of places. Through these time, he has dedicated himself to improving the lives of others around him with a unique global insight. He currently works for Matthews United Methodist Church as an associate youth director, is the coordinator for the Youth Ambassador Program with Samaritans Feet, and is a co-founder for the profit sharing company "5050 Projects". His hope in this endeavor is to work along side the Chilean people to gain a further insight into international community and business.
