Ashoka Fellow Dana Mortenson: Building Empathy Through World Savvy

David |

A dialogue with Ashoka Fellow Dana Mortenson, Founder and CEO of World Savvy, a nonprofit with a mission to prepare the next generation of leaders to learn, work and thrive as responsible global citizens in the 21st century and to support systemic change in K-12 education to provide every student in every classroom with the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to be leaders and changemakers in their diverse communities, locally and globally. World Savvy has grown from serving 90 students and 20 teachers in their first year to reaching more than 250,000 youth and 2000 teachers over their nine-year history from three offices nationally: San Francisco, Minneapolis-St.Paul and New York.
