Leading Experts Present at The National Partnership for Community Training

Mawi Asgedom will keynote The National Partnership for Community Training National Symposium on April 27th. The Connecting Leaders, Impacting Communities and Sustaining Programs: Strengthening the National Torture Treatment Network Symposium features leading experts in the torture treatment and refugee fields who will share tools and techniques for creating robust programs and networks.

“The National Partnership for Community Training has selected Mawi Asgedom as our Keynote Speaker. Mawi’s experience as a refugee, and success in building his own foundation, is aligned with NPCT’s approach of empowering refugees and with the Symposium goals of helping new and existing organizations optimize their programs,” says Melodie Kinet, Director of Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services.

Mawi’s remarkable journey took him from a Sudanese refugee camp to a full scholarship at Harvard University and then to training over 1,000,000 youth in life-changing success skills at his own company, Mawi Learning. At the National Symposium, he will deliver an inspiring and uplifting message to refugee and torture victim professionals about the importance of their work.

“The work at The National Partnership for Community Training is near and dear to my heart,” says Mawi, “Their cutting-edge work and research is helping refugees and torture victims access better lives.”

The National Symposium takes place on April 27th and 28th, 2015 at the University of Miami Student Activities Center. Please visit Gulf Coast JFCS for more information and to register for the event.
