Transcript of The face of MLK

The path of the MLK graduate
Where they went
Municipalities of Birth
Where they are now
So what?
10 years after implementation, the story of the MLK Fellows has still not been told
Survey including responses from 77 graduates of the MLK program
Mapping the journey of the MLK student
In-depth interviews and focus groups
5 success stories
Mechanisms to Tell Their Story
Ultimately
Share stories that demonstrate what a
Local Solution
can do
Share stories that illustrate change in communities that are most vulnerable
The Faces of MLK:
MLK Graduates are:
Academically Diverse
Community leaders
Workplace leaders
Socially aware adults
Teachers for their community


Estefanel Gutiérrez
Bert Corona Leadership Institute in Washington D.C. (Country Representative for Colombia), Barranquilla (24)
Academically Diverse
Estefanel has attended five world-renowned universities, in three countries

Haber sido beneficiario del programa de becas MLK
me permitió consolidar grandes logros académicos
Gracias a los talleres de liderazgo y el aprendizaje del inglés, tuve el honor de atender
varios universidades:

Universidad Nacional De Colombia
American University, Washington College Of Law
Corte Inter Americana De Derechos Humanos En San Jose,Costa Rica
Universidad de los Andes
Columbia University (New York City)
The Community Leader
Jeferson Tenorio Sinisterra
Secretariat of Territorial Development and Social Welfare (Program Monitor), Cali (24)
Jeferson created
Jovenes x Jovenes
, an NGO aimed at getting inner-city Caleño youth out of the streets and into schools

Tenemos eventos socioculturales, donde usamos el baile, el canto, deportes, charlas de liderazgo, entre otras
para los niños afrodescendientes mas vulnerable
Esperamos que la comunidad afectada haga parte de esta iniciativa

Erika Cruz Palacios
Secretariat of Women, Mayor of Medellín (Gestora de igualdad), Medellín (24)
The Workplace Leader
Erika is the only Afrocolombian woman holding public office at the municipal level in Medellin

Haber sido parte del programa MLK, ha brindado un valor agregado a mi perfil profesional.
Mi identidad fortaleció
durante el programa
En cada una de las acciones se vinculen las poblaciones afrodescendientes e indígenas,
disminuyendo la exclusión de nuestras poblaciones
en escenarios de participación y toma de decisiones
The Socially Aware Citizen
Laura Morelo Castro
Grupo Empresarial C.I. Vanoil S.A. (Resident Legal Advisor), Cartagena (22)
Laura is actively involved in judicial research groups that study communities marginalized by social, cultural, racial, or political conditions

El program me ha motivado a seguir trabajando en favor de la población afrocolombiana y la
lucha contra todas la formas de discriminación
Ahora soy ejemplo para mi comunidad y líder de procesos que favorezcan a la sociedad en general
The Teacher
Jorgelino Cordoba Mosquera
Universidad Tecnologica del Choco (Professor), Quidbo (28)
After teaching in the U.S., Jorgelino returned to Quibdo to teach, found NGOs, and develop his hometown

La
Fundación Manos Activas del Choco
ha sido una nueva alternativa de desarrollo para la comunidad Chocoana
Estamos capacitando jóvenes de los colegios públicos de distintas zonas del departamento en materia de liderazgo con el fin de mantener vivo el legado de Dr. King
Con nuestra actitud y liderazgo
vamos a hacer mucho mas y no solo por esta zona, sino; por todo el Pacifico Colombiano que necesita de nuevos lideres
So what?
MLK Program is proof
Local implementing partners
Small size and budget
Huge
effect on the lives and communities that are most vulnerable
Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.
