Brown Bag Seminar GlobalPDX & JWOC
September 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join GlobalPDX and Journeys Within Our Community for a Brown Bag lunch at the Mercy Corps Action Center. Journeys Within Our Community (JWOC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower low-income Cambodians to lead their communities by providing educational and personal development opportunities, inspiring a mindset of co-responsibility and social service.
Two members of the JWOC team are visiting the United States and will share their experience with our GlobalPDX community at the brown bag seminar. The session will start with a brief overview of the organization’s unique model, after which Narla (the program’s very first graduate and now a Board member) and Konthea (JWOC’s current education manager) will share with us how the program has benefited them and changed their lives and the lives of their community.
