Institute for Education’s strategic partner Learn Serve International, http://learn-serve.org/, held their annual Venture Fair in early April. The LearnServe Fellows Program brings together high school students from across the Washington, DC, area to learn how to bring sustainable social change to their communities. Over an academic year, students design and launch their own social “ventures” — action projects to benefit their schools and communities. The students hopefully will become social entrepreneurs.
I was able to see IFE’s intern and LSI fellow, Henry Altman. Here you can see Henry on the right with his blazer and with one of his cohorts. Henry did a great job mastering his nerves and explaining his venture.
Another IFE intern and LSI fellow, Celia Ringland in the picture to the right are explaining her venture to many people who came to view and help these young minds mature into game changers Amongst that crowd was Nicholas Seaver an IFE Fellow and a great supporter of other interns.
Below from left to right are, Henry Atlman, Nicholas Roberts and Celia Ringland. Nicholas Roberts, IFE American University intern and LSI Jamaica, counselor arrived early to help setup the event, demonstrating leadership and support. Nick will travel to Jamaica this summer for LSI’s community service trip.
Congratulation’s to LSI fellows!
