I just discovered that I have been admitted to participate in the GES this Spring:
Congratulations! We are pleased to invite you to attend the Global Engagement Summit in Evanston, IL from April 16-20, 2014. Considering the impressive quality of the applications received, the selections were difficult. Your application stood out among those submitted from across the U.S. and the globe. It is for this very reason that we have chosen to invite you to share your thoughts and experiences with other motivated students from around the world at this year’s Global Engagement Summit.”
The project I applied with is called Inspire Bulgaria: http://vduhnovi.com/english/
The project was launched just a couple of weeks ago, in the beginning of January, and Im extremely excited to learn more about possible ways to develop and improve it!
Plus, I will proudly represent Middlebury College and my lovely country, Bulgaria!
The Global Engagement Summit (GES) builds the capacity of the next generation of change-makers through our annual summit, yearlong programming, and staff curriculum. By identifying talented, young individuals, providing skills training and connecting driven students with innovative thought leaders, GES empowers them to produce responsible and sustainable solutions to shared global problems. In addition to tangible outcomes, resources, and opportunities, GES also strives to provide a forum for discussing critical issues and evaluating why we want to “do good well.” Through GES, students can connect in order to: share challenging ideas, explore the realms of social entrepreneurship and community development, and equip themselves with the tools needed to take their social ventures beyond good intentions. Above all, GES hopes to foster a greater sense of community among the world’s young people through partnerships in change, with a view toward a better tomorrow. GES 2014 will be held April 16th-20th.
The Deadline is December, 1st and the application process is open to Americans (including students studying in the US) and Internationals : )
