Greg A with a solid "Russian" Swing
Congratulations to the most recent incarnation of the "Supple Leopard" pub quiz trivia team (Ryan J, Julie B, Sameer P and Andrew M) on their 4th place finish last weekend. Team CFSBK has their eyes on the play offs!
We're cleaning up the gym and will be donating everything in the lost and found (by the fridge) on the 28th. Please go through it to make sure you didn't leave anything behind without realizing it. Also- starting today we'll be cleaning out the notebook crates below the sign in desk. There are a lot of abandoned notebooks in there taking up space, please take yours home, you can bring it back on July 3rd.
For many of us, our first experience as an international traveler left an indelible mark on our lives and was an important transformative experience. I was lucky to have received a scholarship to spend a summer abroad when I was 16 and that experience changed my life for the better. For sure, that summer fueled my passion for learning about new people and places all the time, and is no doubt a huge reason I am such a supporter of these programs for my own students.
This summer, 11 of my students have an opportunity to spend 4 weeks in Kenya, working on technology-driven social entrepreneurship projects. This program is sponsored and mostly paid for by a US State Department grant. We are fundraising now to meet the difference between their scholarship and the cost of the trip. Together with their communities, we are raising funds to cover the difference between their scholarships and the cost of the program. Your donation can make a difference!
At Global Kids (where I work), a youth leadership and global education program, we believe in providing those opportunities to students in our programs, many of whom attend schools where these experiences are not available to many. This amazing opportunity is available to our students no matter their financial situation.
To learn more about the program, see bios of the youth, and find out more details about fundraising, go to : bardoli.globalkids.org, please consider donating at the aforementioned site. THANKS SO MUCH!
