BEING A NORTH PARK UNIVERSITY GRADUATE WITH A B.A. IN INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATIONS + THROUGH PERSONAL LIFE EXPERIENCES, I’M EXCITED TO SUPPORT THE EFFORTS OF THIS PROGRAM. HERE’S A BLURB ABOUT WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT:

“WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT GIVES AWAY ITS CONFLICT AND PAYS OTHERS TO HANDLE IT, SUCH AS POLICE OR THE LEGAL SYSTEM; WITH THAT, WE ALSO SURRENDER THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN AND GROW AS A HEALTHY COMMUNITY,” SAYS REV. DR. MICHELLE CLIFTON-SODERSTROM, PROGRAM DIRECTOR.

housed in Stateville Correctional Center and run through NORTH PARK THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY, the [PROGRAM] offers a Restorative Arts track allowing free and incarcerated students to study together. The foci of the program include positive race relations and cultural differences, non-violent communication, deepening of one’s faith, servant leadership, and much more.

If we can look back on our lives + know that our personal growth was able to provide support for others to grow, that to me is true success.

 

No matter the type of path to success, it always starts from the ground-up.
