I serve on the board of a non-profit started by a dear friend and colleague - Roshan Paul. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the idea for his organization, the AMANI Institute, blossom in his mind and grow to encompass a vision of social change through smart, focused, and values-driven education reform.
The AMANI Institute is an educational training program that offers courses to encourage and develop leadership skills in social change. Roshan and his team have done some great work, are backed by a number of other educational institutions such as George Mason University and are currently seeking applicants for their Post-Graduate Certificate in Social Innovation Management (SIM).
I encourage you to learn more and apply for the program (classes start in June 2013!).
