International Community Leadership Development (ICLD) Program: South Africa
We're 3/4 of the way through our pilot year! Both halves of the class -- in Missouri and in South Africa, have completed the classroom portion of the leadership program, and the South African participants visited Missouri for a two-week practicum in late July/early August. They visited several different agencies and programs in the Mid-Missouri area, and experienced some local culture as well -- a carnival, a pie-making class at Peggy Jean's (apple pie, of course), and the St. Louis Gateway Arch. We're grateful to all those who assisted with the delegation visit, and to our Columbia host families. The Missouri participants travel to South Africa for their two week practicum soon, leaving on October 3.
