Our Mission

We are a student group from the JHU Center for Leadership Education working to promote sustainable development and alleviate poverty through the empowerment of people, both internationally and in our own backyard.

Our members go on microfinance brigades via our sister organization, Global Microfinance Brigades, to places like Honduras and Panama, develop socially conscious finance lessons for middle school students in Baltimore in the Stocks in the Future program, fundraise to give microloans internationally through KIVA, and more!
