We, The leaders of tomorrow, are searching for A NEW LIGHT
Servant and Leadership Training: May 2-4
Hands Across the World is hosting a Servant Leadership Training to help the leaders of tomorrow from diverse origins and religions, learn not only the networking and organizational skills they need to strive, but also encourage them to further develop their own identity. We want to encourage the leaders of tomorrow to understand the structure of oppression that many have faced and to help accept the wisdom that others contribute to better serve our own communities.

When: A New Light will start Thursday, May 2 at 5pm and run through May 4th at 12pm.

American Revolution Round-Table:
Melvin Bernstein and seven prominent community members led a public conversation at Hands Across the World discussing how the Spirit of the American Revolution can be kept alive today.
The group discussed "shared sacrifice" the "common good" and what we can take from the American Revolution to improve our own community.
Simon Shaheen Performance: April 4, 2013
Simon Shaheen played a wide variety of songs chosen especially for our students.
Some of the songs Shaheen played were familiar to our students. At one point the whole group was chanting together.
Shaheen's performance at Hands Across the World inspired a group of volunteers and staff to attend his performance at the College of St. Benedict.
