Taking A Global Perspective

Students from seven different countries converged in Newark at New Community to see firsthand what social entrepreneurship actually looks like when put into practice.

For 19-year-old Boyuan Zhao, touring various New Community programs and seeing the many services offered was enough to change his mind about the key role organizations like NCC can play in tackling large scale social challenges.

“At the beginning, I didn’t believe it was quite necessary,” said Zhao, a native of Qingdao, China, but then added, “I think it is important to give people hope...for a better future.”

 Zhao was among more than 120 international students visiting New Community with Fairleigh Dickinson University as part of a cultural exchange program. This year’s theme of the program, called the Emerging Global Leaders Seminar, focused on social entrepreneurship, a buzzword that’s grown popular over many years and describes the process of pursuing innovative solutions to address social problems.
