" Young people are immediately empowered once they know that there are like-minded peers dreaming to make concrete impacts in the world as they do. The Millennium Fellowship creates such a network and enables us to accompany, inspire, and learn from each other. For me, this is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate our generation's shared compassion for all peoples, shared belief in the potential of this world, and shared ambition to make it better. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Advocate, Educate, and Fundraise for Children with UNICEF-Georgetown
UNICEF-Georgetown is a campus initiative under the umbrella of UNICEF-USA. In Fall 2019, UNICEF-Georgetown focused on advocating, educating, and fundraising for children negatively impacted by gang violence and irregular migration in Central and Latin America. UNICEF-Georgetown launched a series of fundraisers, campaigns, and panels on and off-campus as well as regular teaching trips to local DC schools. Through events, initiatives, and campaigns, we raised $1000+ for UNICEF and reached out to 1000+ college students and their families, professors and scholars, residents in the greater DC area, schoolchildren, politicians, congresswomen and men, and more. UNICEF-Georgetown's impact of the semester culminated in our annual International Children's Development Conference this November, during which we invited a representative of UNICEF-USA, a nonprofit professional from Child Trends, a lawyer defending for children detained for immigration grounds, a professor specialized in Latin American studies, a former Honduran gang member, and a Virginia Delegate advocating for her Latinx community to have a deep conversation with Georgetown students and DMV residents about migration, children's development, and policies. The Conference was warmly received by our audience and our community. We received onsite donation of $1000 and coverage from our most renowned university newspaper The Hoya.
