Millennium Fellowship Project: No Lost Generation Student Initiative
No Lost Generation Student Initiative at the Georgia Institute of Technology is a student-run initiative to increase advocacy for refugees on campus, support refugee education in nearby refugee community in Clarkston, Georgia, and empower students to think through innovative solutions to the refugee crises. We sold nearly 100 cups of coffee from a local nonprofit, Refuge Coffee, on campus to raise awareness and donate back all profit to the Clarkston Community Center. We have hosted a successful "Civic Dinner", a potluck-style guided discussion focused on what we can do as an initiative to increase our impact and focus our goals. Our goal was to gain new community perspectives and open up discussion while also sharing ethnic foods from all over the world including Ethiopian, Jamaican, and more! From that dinner, we developed our idea to increase on-campus innovation and awareness by planning a 2-day Ideathon - a "Humanitarian Hackathon" - focused on education and also ideating solutions towards problems local nonprofits in the space face. Going into next semester, we are working on securing the resources (funding, partnerships, etc.) for our scheduled event date in late March.
