Melanie LindayenInternational Project Coordinator, Ve'ahavta, Humanitarian Relief Committee
BA International Studies, Glendon College, 2011
My work coordinating international projects covering a range of issues and missions in health and education for a humanitarian relief organization allows me to draw in fascinating ways from my degree at York. This includes partnerships and program development along a community-based development model, recently, for example, engaging and building skills and specialties of student scholars and experts for impact in the field. My field experience has chiefly been in education consulting and training facilitation in South and Southeast Asia, while my current work is focused in Africa, South America, and Caribbean. My base in Toronto allows me to maintain my connection with Glendon through Friends of Glendon and the Galerie.
