It’s Friday and the weekend ahead holds such promise! What are your plans to make a difference these next few days? You can do anything or just a little something, because a little something can go a long way in making big things happen.
What are we up to? Well hey, thanks for asking!
Our staff received a personal day in honor of Juneteenth to truly consider the social injustice and police brutality against Black Americans. We’ll be using this day for reflection, service, donating, or volunteering, and taking 8 minutes and 47 seconds of silence to be mindful of the fact that Black. Lives. Matter. We invite you to do the same.
For this edition of our Future-Focused Friday newsletter, we’re featuring some of the students, staff, and alumni who have carried on the belief of our founders—three optimistic post-war students in the 1950s who dared and dreamed to use study abroad as a catalyst for peace. We hope you’ll feel as inspired as we have by the work they’ve done and continue to do!
