" The Millennium Fellowship offers an incubator-like setting for spurring real change, with fellow students as the motivators. I am thrilled to be working alongside peers with similar ambitions who can inspire me and whom I can watch develop their projects on different passions than my own. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Young Diplomats
Young Diplomats of Seaton Elementary is a program that focuses on opening up the possibility of global citizenship to students in the DC Public School system. In many public schools in America, the study of languages has fallen to the wayside amidst budget cuts and staff downsizing. Young Diplomats works with public schools to bring bilingual college students directly to after school programs to teach students and address this shortcoming.
