Oct. 29, 2012

After studying African history at Northwestern University, Caitlin Kelley realized just studying wasn’t enough: she wanted to make some.

Her path took her to Tanzania where Kelley learned Swahili and worked at a grassroots non-governmental organization, learning the world of local NGO’s and meeting many passionate locals hungry to find ways to make a positive impact in their country.

In 2009, Kelley founded Africa Volunteer Corps, which aims to foster homegrown leaders for African development and strengthen ground-up social change in Africa.

“I will discuss my personal story starting Africa Volunteer Corps, the work we do, along with our vision for the future and the impact we have already seen as well as the challenges I have faced and how I overcame them,” said Kelley, who will speak at Flagler College on Nov. 8. “I’ll also discuss what it means to be the change you want to see in the world and the lessons I have learned along this journey.”

Kelley’s lecture, “"Becoming the Change You Want to See," will take place at 7 p.m. on Nov. 8 in the Gamache-Koger Theater in the Ringhaver Student Center at 50 Sevilla St., St. Augustine.
