I have just returned from two weeks of co-leading sessions at the Global Health Corps Training Institute with Still Harbor's executive director Ed Cardoza and facilitator Julie Barnes. This year there are 128 fellows from 22 countries going to work at 53 partner organizations!

We facilitated almost daily sessions from Still Harbor's 'A Life of Service' curriculum which explores the personal, communal, and inspirational dimensions of each fellow’s call, capacity, and commitment to making change in the world.

We consider ourselves blessed to partner with Global Health Corps and to also support the beauty and depth of this new class of fellows’ individual and shared purpose in the world.

Here we offer blog posts from two of the incredible fellows (many more to come, we're sure):

You will also find inspiration from the two-week training by checking out the #ghctraining2014 hashtag on Twitter. Here are a few highlights:

What advice do you have for the fellows as the embark on their year of service with Global Health Corps?
