They will travel the globe to work in developing countries while paired up with a social entrepreneurial organization. The students will work for 11 months and return to the College and live in a Minerva house for one month, where they will participate in a social entrepreneurial course and educate current students about their experiences abroad.

Ilyena Kozain and William Phillips, Dgeye Village, Uganda
Forrister Ross and Danielle Lussier, Jinan, China
