Café Impact Gives #GlobalPOV A Nod

Cafe ImpactCafé Impact, an online hub for witty, thought-provoking videos featuring no-crap conversations between host Jonathan Lewis and a cohort of successful social change agents, recently added a shout-out to The #GlobalPOV Project on its website:

The #GlobalPOV Project (UC Blum Center for Developing Economies) makes the smartest and most entertaining videos about poverty on the Internet.

Café Impact produces online leadership development videos for young millennials seeking “careers of conscience.” The organization was founded by serial entrepreneur Jonathan Lewis, who uncoincidentally teaches a social entrepreneurship class in the Global Poverty and Practice Minor. For more on Lewis, visit his website; read his latest thoughts at The Huffington Post; and get to watching those Café Impact videos already! (If you’re as talented, ambitious and utterly flawed as we, here’s a video recommendation to get you started.)
