Hear about how YASC has adapted to the pandemic by participating in online mentoring and leadership development programs as a way to stay connected and serve with our partners in India.
Organized in collaboration with Creatnet.org and Manzil, Indian non-profits, YASC has been part of two projects to cultivate and facilitate business skills starting with a train-the-trainer (leadership) program. The second program supplemented a mini-MBA program and we mentored, provided advice, and counseled entrepreneurs through a series of online sessions. These programs have led to robust exchanges and developed a deeper cultural understanding through virtual service engagement.
Join us for a discussion about these programs as part of Celebrate Service Week and hear from YASC members Kathy Edersheim '87, Jeff Harlowe '77, Patty Locuratolo Hymanson '79, and Peter Oh '95. The panel will be moderated by Perry Sayles '88, YASC chair and trip producer for the March 2019 trip to the Dominican Republic.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about these unique virtual service engagement opportunities, discuss what we accomplished on behalf of those we worked with, and how these programs can strengthen our commitment for long-term engagement with the ground partners we work with and the communities we serve.
