Closing ceremony at Skarva Farm after the Reunion in June, 2014.
Dear friends,
 
Happy October and Welcome to Stratleade’s first Quarterly Newsletter! We will use this space to update you on developments at Stratleade and the Alumni network. 

Reunion brought back memories of our time at MSLS. During the course of the week we had a number of conversations relating how to maximize the potential of our group. Some spirited dialogue around the future of the network helped shape the final day of exercises for the entire group. 
 
Thursday ushered in commitments and actions how people will get involved. Some of these commitments included Stratleade while others did not. We are sharing all this, as there is an identified need to create a strong network. 
At a strategic level, we are working to create an organization that will work on behalf of Alumni, become an online meeting place, and strengthen our network. There is much work that must be done to bring this to fruition and we are charting a course to make this reality. 

Our Fiscal Year ended September 30, 2014, and thus the close of the Annual fund drive. We cannot thank you enough for your participation. This years campaign generated $9,216 from 81 contributors.  These funds will help the organization to:
  • Provide grants for deserving MSLS students
  • Create a MSLS Book to attract large foundation grants
  • Hire a paid Executive Director to manage the day-to-day operations
  • Hire staff/interns
  • Update the website
  • Develop Alumni Network programs and services
  • Strategic planning for the organization
To all of you who have given and those who are giving on a monthly basis, THANK YOU!!!  To those who are thinking of Stratleade and not in a position to give, THANK YOU for thinking of us, your energy is much appreciated.
 
Remember, you can give via the web at www.stratleade.org. We welcome suggestions and feedback. We look forward to updating you as we work through this process.  Wishing you all a productive Fall.
 
Warmest regards,

The Stratleade Team

Messages from our recent awardees

Introducing this year's awardee: Atanas Genkov from Bulgaria
 

I come from Bulgaria, where I grew up in a healthy balance of modern city life, ancient rural traditions and enchanting wildlife. I have a Bachelor degree in Computer Sciences and I did an internship in the e-learning business in Toronto, Canada. Meanwhile, I volunteered actively for AIESEC and further discovered the world and my leadership potential in various roles, including leading the organisation at national level.

Once back home, I took another path, as a free-lance trainer in the NGO sector and for three years I developed and delivered training courses all over Europe.

I joined the MSLS community with the intention to integrate sustainability in my training courses, educate and inspire more and more young people to work together as a community towards a sustainable world of Peace, Harmony, Love and Joy.
 
My impressions so far are extremely positive - the program exceeds any expectations I had, I love the variety of topics covered in such a short time, the inspirational lecturers, the diversity in the class and the richness of experiences and community spirit.
