ENewsletter April 2012

We've always believed that the world's best hope for a better future lies in its young people. It's an idea that gets reinforced for us every year by the Next Generation Leaders—high school seniors who have demonstrated tremendous promise. We look forward to welcoming our next group of leaders to Grand Circle. We also continue to focus on schools around the world, including a new partner school in Namibia you'll read about in this issue, and we thank the generous travelers who have done the same in Tanzania. We also are glad that our Boston associates have taken the lead in helping homeless veterans move into new, permanent homes. To us, it's an important way to honor those who have helped make the world not only a better place, but also a safer one.

Recognizing Gutsy Leaders

We believe that true leadership can come from anywhere—from boardrooms to classrooms, from City Hall to city streets. It takes guts to change the world … and our leaders are helping to do so, each in their own unique way.
