The Genesis Summer Institute, a pilot program of the Genesis Academy for Global Leadership, is a curriculum designed to nurture future global leaders who will work on peace-building. The educational program focuses on four core areas: music and peacebuilding; human rights; peace journalism; and environmental sustainability. The project unites international students and diverse U.S. students for cross-cultural experiences. Students in this year’s program come from Northern Ireland, Cambodia, Pakistan, Bosnia and the U.S. Wendy Sternberg, founder and executive director of Genesis at the Crossroads, joins us to talk about the program. Roheena Madni and Asa Mallon, two students taking part in the Institute, join Sternberg to share their experiences.
