Global Education Leadership Fund (GELF)

Remember the exotic exchange programs at your high school? French Club ’s adventure in Paris where everyone came back with Toblerone and a beret? People with different accents roaming the halls? I do!

We are looking for 4 Newton South parents to join an existing board to help fundraise for GELF.  GELF is a fantastic scholarship fund that provides scholarships to low-income students at Newton North or South to participate in life-changing international educational travel opportunities. GELF opens doors and changes lives. Although COVID may restrict travel currently we have an eye toward Spring 2022 and beyond.

We would love parents passionate about exchange programs and a little experience with fundraising a plus. The GELF Committee has 4 Newton North parents  on the board and a treasurer. Meetings are quarterly or as needed and typically are scheduled 4-5:30. The first meeting is mid September..

Please contact Michelle Wetlaufer or Star Lew if you are interested in this amazing opportunity!
