Students Gain Real-World Experience as Nonprofit Consultants in Haiti
Date: Thursday, September 13, 2012
An interdisciplinary team of graduate student consultants traveled to a rural mountain community in Haiti in January 2012 as part of the RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service Curtis W. Meadows, Jr. Social Enterprise Fellows program. The students were there to conduct an assessment of the local water supply for a faith-based nonprofit. At the end of their 10-day assessment, students provided the nonprofit with a sustainable plan of action to help the local community gain better access to clean water. In this video, students describe their experiences garnering real-world skills, which is the bedrock of the LBJ School's educational mission.
