Global Citizen Year Creates Social Enterprise Leaders
Josh grew up in a rough neighborhood of Oakland, Calif. Despite learning disabilities and other challenges, he was accepted into a program that let him spend the year after his graduation from high school in a community development program in Senegal, Africa. A year later, he stood in front of an audience including his parents and local community leaders and talked about his experiences. And in September 2011, he is headed to a college in the northeast on scholarship to pursue a career that will take him far from those Oakland streets.
