" I have enormous faith in the children who suffer from the consequences of systematic neglection. The opportunity to become a Millennium Fellow will sharpen my skills on what sustainable solutions look like for those who are displaced, marginalized, or vulnerable. I am excited to see the types of movements curated by a cohort of Fellows dedicated to defeat the ugliest sides of humanity with a strong force of love. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: No Lost Generation
No Lost Generation take initiative to educate, protect, and shield the future of refugee children in conflict and post-conflict zones. Due to the recent introduction of the No Lost Generation chapter at Furman University, success looks like core leaders dividing their time between planning and implementing events. Leaders should have at least 2 meetings amongst themselves: one to further investigate different methods to share the No Lost Generation initiative on a campus-wide level and another to collaborate with local community leaders to bridge the gap between Furman and Greenville. Afterwards, leaders should host at least three events on campus. At least 1 of these events should be lecture-based where speakers provide insight to what the goals of the No Lost Generation are, and why it's imperative for students to pay attention to the global refugee crisis. Another event should be more of an engaging stimulation where students can understand the crisis through the lens of refugee children. The last event should be a combination of information and engagement but also provide what next steps look like for students who may not be as prone to taking action in a time of crisis. After rigorous planning, success can be quantified through an increase of at least 100 volunteers at the local refugee resettlement agency and at least 20 people joining the No Lost Generation chapter at Furman University.
