Vision

Greenheart envisions an alumni council made up of empowered agents of change. Together this diverse network will challenge and inspire each other to grow as global leaders and develop initiatives that will leave a lasting impact in the communities where they live and serve.

Alumni Council members play an integral role in furthering the Greenheart mission by:

  • Spreading the Greenheart brand in their local communities
  • Supporting Greenheart donor engagement
  • Building up a strong alumni network in their regions
  • Developing projects on a local and global scale
  • Identifying and strengthening relationships with other changemakers in their communities

Who We’re Looking For

Greenheart Champions
We’re looking for individuals that confidently live out our mission of connecting people and planet. Council members fully utilize every opportunity to grow the Greenheart family and share the powerful stories of fellow Greenhearts creating change in their communities. You are passionate about the work that Greenheart does and want to utilize your unique skills to push us further.

Cross-Cultural Curiosity
We are building a Council of open-minded, compassionate individuals who desire to understand and explore new cultures inside and out. You want to dive right in and forge cross-cultural relationships by being an active listener and observer. You are constantly reevaluating preconceived notions and stereotypes. Your passion to learn from and connect with others is stronger than the discomfort that may emerge from challenging cross-cultural situations.

Advocates in Action
Our Council members are informed and empowered. You use your voice to advocate for social good on a local and global scale. You are enlivened by opportunities to speak to your representatives about creating change and securing equitable resources for overlooked people groups and communities. Greenheart seeks innovative thinkers who are able to come up with fresh ideas and advocate for cultural exchange.

Collaborators
Council members actively invite others to join us in fulfilling our mission of creating a more peaceful, sustainable future for all. You are continuously building up a network of support within your community and expanding your boundaries to work with people outside of your immediate circle. You celebrate the successes of your peers and fellow Global Leaders.
Leaders know that true collaboration requires compromise, respect, and reaching common-ground.
