Lafayette College alumnus Daniel Moore ’75 returns to campus to give a special presentation about his work with Leadership Mission International, a nonprofit Honduras-based organization for young women that he chairs. Moore’s talk takes place at 7 p.m., Mon. Nov. 9 in Kirby Hall of Civil Rights, room 104. The public is invited to attend free of charge.
Leadership Mission International (LMI) focuses on developing young Honduran women (typically ages 19-22) into ethical leaders that will help transform their local communities. Moore will share several real life experiences, discuss their businesses and, most importantly, talk about students’ personal impact in their communities.
Part of LMI’s mission is The Leadership Center—a university stationed in Honduras that offers a 2-3 year academic and residency program. Approximately 30 young women from diverse backgrounds and locations throughout Honduras take part in the program. The young women are all from underprivileged families that would not otherwise be able to continue their education.
The Leadership Center teaches English, leadership, community development, business and entrepreneurship, as well as other liberal arts courses. The Center also helps students develop business plans, coaches them on operational techniques, and invests start-up capital for the businesses. The objective is for these young women to become recognized as leaders and to gain local credibility so that they might provide insight and influence into the development of their communities.
Moore has over 30 years experience with entrepreneurial businesses, including starting up and managing companies, as well as financing transactions and equity investing. He is the managing partner of Longstreet Partners, a financial advisory and private equity firm focused on small to mid-sized enterprises.
This event is sponsored by the Office of Intercultural Development. For more information, contact John McKnight, dean of intercultural development, (610) 330-5320, email@example.com.
