Global Explorers Blog: Leadership
As a father of three children, I’m always asking people for guiding principles for raising kids. I’ve received a lot of input from folks, but three items always seem to rise to the top. One of these is to keep them busy and active, with the real goal that they will discover PASSION. Once they latch onto passion, it will spread throughout all of their other activities.
Two of my sons have participated in Global Explorers programs and their experiences had a tremendous impact on them. They came back with passion! They were exposed to:
• Team building … realizing that it takes a team to reach the top of a mountain
• Culture awareness
• Community participation
• Science / environment education
