Review for Cape Eleuthera Foundation Inc, Philadelphia, PA, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first involvement with the Cape Eleuthera Foundation came in January 2004 when I visited Eleuthera as a 14 year-old prospective student. I applied, was accepted, and spent a semester as a student there in 2005. Without a doubt, the time I spent at the Island School - one of three nonprofit educational institutions under the Cape Eleuthera Foundation - was an incredible formative experience. In three months I not only gained a new perspective on the world but also physical and emotional self-confidence and relationships that are still close almost a decade later. Since I left the Island School in the summer of 2005 I have been involved in alumni relations/advising and currently serve as a member of the Board of Directors of the Cape Eleuthera Foundation, overseeing the Island School, Cape Eleuthera Institute, and the Deep Creek Middle School. I am constantly humbled by the professionalism and caliber of everyone associated with CEF and the important mission of the organization to inculcate a sense of community and connectivity (with a focus on environmental sustainability and individual leadership) in a world that is trending away from these critical pillars.
