Summer Friday: Innovations in Education
Throughout our twenty-fifth anniversary year, we've been exploring the connections between the pioneering work of our earliest Fellows and the newest innovations of our 2013 class. All summer long we'll be offering up video pairings showing that the locally-grown apple doesn't fall too far from the microfinanced tree. So before you slip out for the weekend, take a moment to learn about the changes these Fellows have brought about in this world, and the work yet to be done!
Weekend 5: New Approaches to Identifying and Teaching Next Generation Leadership
2006 Fellow and Founder of African Leadership Academy Chris Bradford talked about creating shared prosperity on the African content by identifying, developing, and connecting Africa's next generation of leaders.
Succesful finalists and 2013 Black Male Achievement Fellows Jen Porter and Jane Wilson pitched the bold idea behind their organization The Reset Foundation: transform the prison experience into an educational opportunity.
