Education as a Tool for Social Change in Eastern Europe
I serve on the boards of two extraordinary organizations that operate summer schools in Eastern Europe, in which I also teach: Aspire Academy (based in Bucharest, Romania), and the International Spark Program (based in Tbilisi, Georgia). Both organizations are attempting to improve the futures of their young, post-Soviet democracies by cultivating critical thinking and leadership skills in today's youth.
International Spark was originally developed as a class project by one of my students in an undergraduate social entrepreneurship class, and was profiled in the September 2012 issue of Harvard Magazine.
