Post-Retirement Global Leadership: Never too late to change the world

Have you always dreamed of international public service? Can you give-up creature comforts and live simply? Do you speak a foreign language (or need motivation to learn) and do you have a spirit for adventure? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be cut-out for the rigorous and rewarding work of mid/post-career U.S. foreign service, working with the United Nations, or volunteering with the Peace Corps. If you are more interested in civilian direct action, unarmed civilian protection, or peacekeeping; there are a number of nongovernmental organizations, large and small, who would be happy to have you among their ranks. 

This four-hour workshop introduces mid-career and post-career opportunities in the field of foreign aid, education and diplomacy for global leadership. Maybe it's your turn to fill up your duffle bag and hit the dusty road of adventure in service to your country, or to lead global change in service to your humanity.
