Tyler's SEGL in South Africa with the Mamelodi Initiative
Organized by: Joanne Cremins
This fall I attended the most formative and influential program of my life, The School for Ethics and Global Leadership in Washington D.C. (SEGL). I've met many amazing students and people and lived with great mentors for four months. During the summer SEGL has opportunities for graduates to travel abroad and continue our study of ethics and leadership. The South Africa trip works with the Mamelodi Initiative to offer workshops in a variety of subject matter that local students and children can take part in. SEGL former faculty member Richard Kelley helped to found the initiative and Richard has been a source of inspiration for me to pursue my own goals and create change in my community. To make this trip possible every year SEGL students must pay to attend covering travel costs and fees and for the initiative itself. Graduates of SEGL can apply for financial aid but it is very limited as most is put towards new students for the next semester. In order to keep the trip possibile for future graduates I'm asking for donations so that they too can have the experiences and oppurtunities I've had, and hopefully to produce the next generation of world leaders to create positive change.
