Want international experience?
Want to help make a more caring, family-supporting world?
Learning Life, a Washington DC-based educational nonprofit, is looking for families with two or more family members (parent and child, grandparents and grandchildren, siblings, cousins, etc.) willing to participate together in our Family Diplomacy Initiative (FDI). Launched in 2016, FDI is an ambitious, long-term, grassroots effort to connect, train and empower a growing international corps of volunteer family diplomats (FDs) to participate in decision-making at local to global levels. We envision a world more connected and caring because every family has one or more family diplomats, and those citizen diplomats advocate effectively via nonprofits, businesses, media and governments for the needs, concerns and aspirations of families worldwide.
FDs are volunteers who (a) join our growing international FDI Facebook community, and (b) participate in live international training via Zoom in citizen diplomacy, trends, patterns and issues facing families worldwide, and advocacy skills, including family storytelling, with an eye to becoming advocates for families across the world. The training in 2023 runs every Sunday, 12:00-1:30pm EST via Zoom June 9 to October 29. Learn more and apply to become an FD, or share this invitation with families you know who may be interested.
