I'm so proud and honored to work with such an inspiring team in the Dukwi #refugee camp in #Botswana! If you'd like to learn more about what we're doing to nurture effective leadership and personal growth, definitely check out our next update.
 
Later this week we're sending out a #LEEP update, which includes a wonderful letter by Jack valuing the changes he's seen within himself as a LEEP staff member. If you haven't signed-up for updates, it's super easy (http://goo.gl/8XwENb) or +1 this post & we'll message you a direct link to the letter once it's out. As always, thanks for your support!

I remember when my 11th grade history teacher encouraged me not to give up, that there was still time to grow into who I wanted to be. I have never forgotten that day. The power of positive role models, from those who offer support and mentorship, is very real. This relationship is a key component to the success of LEEP. Please join me in supporting LEEP so that students in Dukwi can feel the love of those who care so much about them!
Support LEEP 2015!

It's official! We've launched our campaign to continue LEEP in the Dukwi refugee camp in 2015. So many of you have supported me and the program over the last year, and I hope that you'll considering continuing to do so. Thank you so much for all the love and encouragement you've offered. Let's make sure we keep LEEP in 2015!
Support LEEP 2015!

+Scottie's Place is truly making a difference in the lives of children affected by poverty and conflict. Please help ensure that camp programs are available this summer free-of-cost for children in need. Any amount you can offer makes a difference. Thanks so much!

Had an awesome week making paper snowflakes in LEEP. We'll be hanging them in the classroom so I'll be sure to share some photos of the awesome designs the students and tutors made. Hope you're all having a great week, too!

Do you remember making paper snowflakes when you were a kid? Winter has ended in the US, but is just beginning in Botswana. This week in LEEP we are making paper snowflakes to highlight how the unique individual fits into the beautiful, yet complex, larger community. It's also likely that these will be the only snowflakes in Dukwi this winter!

LEEP students excelled this year because of the one-on-one support they received from their tutor, ensuring that their individual needs were both recognized and met. Together, let's make sure that students next year are able to receive the same level of care. Support LEEP 2015!

Sorry if this is a bit nerdy, but I'm proud to share that I recently participated in the Art of Leadership training through the Rockwood Leadership Institute. I'm also deeply grateful for +Scottie's Place and its supporters who made this opportunity possible. Yay!
 
Hey everyone! We're sorry that we've been so quiet lately, but know that we've been busy this past month in preparation for next year's programs! We have some exciting updates releasing soon including big advancements with our website, LEEP 2015, and more ways in which you can get involved. We're also proud to share that Matt recently completed the Art of Leadership Training through the Rockwood Leadership Institute. Those new skills will greatly enrich the LEEP curriculum. Thanks to you all for your continued support!

Got 30 seconds? Meet Vivian, another one of the many wonderful students in LEEP. She shares her appreciation for her tutor and for all those who helped to bring LEEP to Dukwi #refugee camp. We couldn't be more proud of her!

I've now had the pleasure of booking with AirTreks for two international trips. Each experience has been fantastic: their staff is responsive, kind, and helpful; their emails are descriptive, thoughtful, and relevant; and their research is quick and thorough. Will continue to return to them for future travel.
