Highlight From The Global Citizen Journal

Volume 2: Staying For Tea

Letter from the Editors
If travel and service are important to the development of leaders who engage society with a sense of civic responsibility, and this in turn helps to build the social capital required for healthy democratic governance and for societies to function well, then the Krista Foundation is doing very well to support young adults who commit themselves to significant periods of travel and service. This edition of the Global Citizen contains eight articles written by “Krista Colleagues” – service volunteers who have received support from the foundation. Their topics range widely, but each article provides a window into the transformative process of which Dr. Hunt writes. Each author grapples with a unique set of issues brought to the surface as they served others in a new place.

The Krista Foundation equips young adults with skills to transform service experiences into lives of service leadership.

Transitioning from a service year can be a disorienting experience. Through mentoring, a colleague community and re-integration services, the Krista Foundation helps young adults fully understand and employ the learnings from their service experience.

Our colleagues touch lives through hands-on volunteer service with organizations such as Peace Corps, AmeriCorps or Jesuit Volunteer Corps.

Our unique peer-mentoring model develops young Christian leaders during their pivotal 20-something years.

Our colleagues' insightful leadership positively shapes our global and local communities.
