Location: Washington, DCStandard Set Answer:
I volunteer with an education based social enterprise start up- Compass Partners- that has developed a Fellowship program for Freshman University students that would like to create and build their own social enterprise. Compass connects students to other students and builds networks while providing an alternative hands- on method to learning how to run a business.
I also work at an international organization that focuses on public diplomacy and cultural exchange. My division works on the International Visitor Leadership Program with the US Department of State. The program brings business professsionals from all over the world to the US for a three week business exchange program. While in the US, my organization sets up these visitors with their US counterparts to share best practices in their respective fields. I am most interested in the programs related to education and social entrepreneurship.
I hope that I can learn a little more about how the international community perceives changes in education and the models around the world that are really working.
