Barney Leadership Council Hosts Strength to Strength

On May 1, 2017 University of Hartford Barney Leadership Council students hosted students from Strength to Strength. 

Strength to Strength (StoS) is a nonprofit organization established to support victims of terrorism around the world through regular meetings, provision of information and advice, and raising awareness of the unmet needs of victims and their families. Strength to Strength enables victims of terrorism to share experiences and empowers them to live life to their best potential.  

Members of the Barney Leadership Council (BLC) and Barney School of Business faculty came together to give visiting StoS students participating in the “Young Ambassadors” program a true taste of college life in the United States. The Young Ambassadors were brought together from Argentina, Colombia, France, Israel, Northern Ireland, Spain, the U.K. and the U.S.   

StoS students were able to truly immerse themselves in college life. Ten BLC students were paired with groups of two StoS students to attend Barney School classes. To close, BLC students and faculty engaged in a final reception and bid farewell to the Strength to Strength students and advisors.  Through their interactions, everyone involved became more culturally and socially aware and forged lasting connections and relationships.
