This November, SEGL Graduate Azé Williams (Spring ’19) launched her SEGL Social Venture Project: a Thanksgiving food bank at her public high school in Newark, New Jersey. The Social Venture Project (SVP) is one of three SEGL capstones, and is designed to link each student’s learning here with a need in her/his home community.
Each SVP is unique, as is its creation story. Each reflects our mission at work.
We caught up with Azé last week.Read More

For the first time, SEGL is running two semester programs simultaneously: one in Washington, DC, and one in Johannesburg, South Africa, on the campus of the African Leadership Academy. Our opening week has been extraordinary, and the months leading up to our students’ arrival were packed.Read More
This June, SEGL graduates have a unique opportunity to join Izzy Gordon (Summer 2019) in Kenya to help her realize her Social Venture Project.
Her idea? To bring SEGL’s ethics and leadership curriculum to the village of Koru, Kenya. What can our curriculum contribute to this remarkable community? What can Koru teach SEGL teachers, students, and graduates? We caught up with Izzy recently to learn more about the upcoming trip, her interest and connection to the region, and how SEGL graduates can find out more.
