VOICES OF HOPE INTERVIEWS

>>>>DR. CHRIS MEYERS ASCH | CAMPAIGN FOR A U.S. PUBLIC SERVICE ACADEMY
In 2005 the Bridgespan Group wanted to better understand the face of nonprofit leadership. To their surprise the group discovered a growing leadership deficit facing the social sector. "The Leadership Deficit", an article in the Stanford Social Innovation Review by Bridgespan Group's co-founder, Thomas J. Tierney points to sector growth while baby boomers begin their retirement exodus. But nonprofit burnout has also been noted as a problem in a Chronicle of Philanthropy article. To meet the growing need in the next decade for over 640,000 new executives nonprofit sector leaders will have to think outside-the-box to meet growing recruitment demands. In a commentary response to Bridgespan's report, Tom Vander Ark, Education Executive Director, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation speaks to a lack of viable civic and educational infrastructures. With that in mind Voices of Hope Productions interviewed Dr. Chris Meyers Asch, a young, experienced public servant with a passion for an idea; the first U.S. Public Service Academy. Asch, 33 and his colleague, Shawn Raymond, 34 are making a pitch to Congress to establish and fund a civilian leadership university modeled after the nation's military service academies. With a little bit of luck and a lot of passion and perseverance this project has a good chance of getting off the ground. Read interview

"The first thing to keep in mind, is that your objective is not to make a 'TV show' or a 'show' of any kind. You are collecting evidence; you are encouraging witness; you are emboldening ordinary people to 'go public.'"

Turn on the Power! Using Media for
Social
Change
