I met Sheryl a little over a year ago when I was first launching my app, React Mobile. I am a true believer in ClearCause's mission and was blown away by Sheryl's story and passion to enhance the safety of students traveling abroad. ClearCause offers a wealth of information and helpful resources, such as the ASAPP (A Student Studying Abroad Preparedness Plan) Checklist. We share a common goal to enhance personal safety and look forward to finding ways to promote ClearCause in the future.
Hi my name is Amara Solomon Kamara, and I am a full time certified personal trainer, by career. It was through this, that I met Sheryl and was her trainer for a year. I have also attended some of her events for clearcause, and have donated to the cause. Sheryl pation to safe American kids over sea can be seen in her when shes talks about it. The tears in her eyes, knowing that this goverment is powerful and is capabale of putting actions in place to protect our siblings abroad on an exchange programs, but doing nothing about it. As a parent it is indeed, difficult to deal withwhat happens in our school system here, in turns safety for stundents, let alone over seas. Its nerve breaking! Changes can be dificult, but when it hapens, we are gald that we did it. Please help Sheyl change the world.
I met Sheryl Hill at Accelerate Minnesota last month and since then I have become a firm believer in and recruit for spreading her mission of safety first to youth, parents, and study abroad administrators. She has educated me about the need for standards of practice for all travel programs, from those at our public schools through private institutions. How many deaths and traumatic experiences will it take until regulations or at least safety minimums are established by legislators? I applaud Sheryl and CCF for their huge steps forward. This year, I am proud to be part of helping CCF take even larger steps toward making study abroad an extremely positive, life changing, rather than life taking, experience.
I heard about ClearCause Foundation while attending a class taught by the founder. I work occasionally with students traveling abroad and believe this foundation will serve an unmet safety need for such travelers.
This is a very important cause that will help to ensure safety for hundreds of students going abroad every year. I have spent several years in total studying abroad as both an undergraduate, intern, and postgraduate in several different countries, and having a network through a foundation like ClearCause is extremely important when in need of support- whether it be medical, work, or personal issues. Wonderful foundation created for a great cause.
