High school students can be important agents of positive change. I was approached by the Centreville (VA) High School Chapter of Students Together Assisting Refugees (STAR) about helping the group find a refugee community to work with. They are looking to set up clothing drives and other means of helping refugees. Helping those impacted by war and natural disaster feel comfortable and succeed in the U.S. are important objectives. I am featuring STAR as this week’s Featured Peacebuilding Group.
If you are interested in helping out the STAR chapter in Centreville, VA, please let me know.
I am a career coach, consultant, and head of a not for profit - the Forage Center - that offers humanitarian education training. I also teach at George Mason University and Drexel University. A one time lawyer, I spent many years teaching in a community college where I was a Fulbright U.S. Scholar teaching in Estonia. I'm the author of Peace Jobs: A Student's Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace (IAP 2016). I've been married to my best friend for over 31 years and we have two well adjusted adult children who teach me something new everyday. I live in Rockville, Maryland.
