GAMBIAHELP Receives Seattle University Student - April 2012
Alexandra Cratsenberg, a psychology student at Seattle University
has come to GambiaHELP for 8 weeks as part of Seattle University's course titled
Non-Profit Leadership and Interpersonal Behavior. The class taught by Noreen
Elbert provides hands-on learning to students interested working in non-profit
organizations. Local organizations provide project opportunities for the
students and selections are made at the beginning of each quarter. The
leadership project selected by the Alex is the Gambia Bicycle Campaign - which
is a project designed to procure used and new bicycles for children living in
Course topics explore leadership traits, skills and characteristics as well as
poses questions related to the role of vision and examines how one creates a
compelling vision for an agency and their employees. A leadership topic is
selected by the student covering ethical leadership, adaptive leadership,
muti-scultural leadership, servant leadership as examples, and with the
selection of 3-5 recent journal articles, develops questions to ask the mentor.
Alex and I used our first meeting to make introductions, develop the topic and
started brain-storming about where we go to find bicycles. Within 48 hours
after our meeting, Alex sent me a 2 -page e-mail loaded with ideas - a list
suggesting we connect with the UW bicycle group, SU bicycle group, Cascade
Bicycle Club, Shopping Malls, local schools, local running events, with many
agencies and organizations named. We are now dividing up the leads and plan to
draft a timeline next week.
