JSA Pilots Courageous Leadership

JSA Pilots Courageous Leadership

JSA is partnering with Courageous Leadership to launch an exciting, innovative new program called Courageous Leadership for a Courageous Democracy. This program will be introduced at Fall State 2017 in Southern California and builds on JSA members’ public speaking and debate skills. It encourages open-minded, open-hearted conversations about important issues with those who have opposing views.  The program also provides tools to collaborate and experiment with different approaches to help solve significant challenges for JSA members in their roles as future leaders in society. Courageous Leadership has used this content with teams at Google, MIT, Stanford, the Australian Government, and more.

Listen to this personal invitation from Van Jones, encouraging you to participate in this program.

For more information about Courageous Leadership and its research-based work, please visit its website at www.thecourage2lead.com. Questions about the Courageous Democracy session can be directed to dcottonroyal@jsa.org.

Alumni Event on Oct. 15

Alumni Event on Oct. 15

JSA Alumni are invited to an evening of dinner, drinks and stimulating conversation on Sunday, Oct. 15 at The Pearl in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood.  The event will feature dynamic speakers, networking an opportunity to meet current JSA students.

The theme for the evening is Civics Goes Digital: 21st Century Political Engagement. In today’s digital world access to information has become simple and immediate, but everywhere we turn we see conflicting stories designed to entertain, engage, and even provoke target audiences. How can we best support a vibrant public life, meaningful participation, informed conversations and a representative government in these challenging times?

FEATURED SPEAKERS

Loren Bendele is a serial entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of Gell, a mobile/web platform that brings people together through civil discourse on issues that matter. This past summer more than 100 JSA students came together to serve as Gell Ambassadors to help launch the initiative. Prior to Gell, Loren was the co-founder and CEO of Savings.com which he led from launch in 2007 through acquisition in 2012 by Cox Media Group and continued to run within Cox until 2015. Savings.com was awarded the Best M&A Exit by the Los Angeles Venture Association in 2013, the Best Place to Work in Los Angeles by the LA Business Journal (three years in a row) and one of Inc. 500’s Fastest Growing Companies in America. Loren was also the founder of Favado, a grocery app that aggregates all the most popular sales and coupons for every major grocery store across the country. Favado earned over 2 million downloads in less than 2 years, 5-star user ratings on iOS and Android, a Net Promoter Score of 80 and grew to the largest nationwide database of grocery sales and coupons. Loren is also heavily involved in the K-12 public education system in Los Angeles. He is a board member and previous Board Chair of KIPP LA Schools, a high-performing network of fifteen charter schools in East LA and South Central. KIPP LA Schools are 99% students of color where 90% of students are on free or assisted government lunch programs. KIPP LA Schools consistently operates the top performing schools in all of Los Angeles Unified School District, and the top schools serving low-income communities in all of California. Loren, his wife, and two children live in Los Angeles.

Marshall Tuck believes in the power of public schools to change lives – and he’s spent the last 15 years working to make it happen. Tuck was most recently an Educator-in-Residence at the New Teacher Center (NTC), a nonprofit organization working with school districts to help develop and retain effective teachers and principals. In 2007, Tuck became the founding CEO of the nonprofit Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, a groundbreaking collaboration between the Mayor’s office and LA Unified School District to operate 17 struggling elementary, middle, and high schools serving 15,000 students. Under Tuck’s leadership, these schools raised four-year graduation rates by more than 60% and had the highest academic improvement among California’s school systems with more than 10,000 students. Prior to that, Tuck served as President of the nonprofit Green Dot Public Schools, where he helped create 10 new public charter high schools in some of LA’s poorest neighborhoods. All of them outperformed local schools – and 7 have been ranked among the top high schools in America by U.S. News & World Report. Tuck is the son of a teacher and a graduate of UCLA and Harvard Business School. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Mae, and their son Mason.
