BRATTLEBORO, Vt., May 23 /U.S. Newswire/ -- World Learning, one of the world's first private, nonprofit, international educational organizations, announces that their new President, outgoing UNICEF director Carol Bellamy, will serve as Commencement Speaker for its commencement on Saturday, May 28.

Deeply committed to global peace and development, Bellamy has brought a compassionate yet pragmatic ethic to improving the lives of women and children. She has visited more than 100 countries, advocating for children and women with heads of state, cultural icons, corporate leaders, rebel commanders, and many others.

Under Bellamy's leadership for the past decade, UNICEF has become a champion of global investment in children. She has challenged leaders from all walks of life to recognize their moral, social, and economic responsibility to invest in children and to shift national resources accordingly.

Prior to joining UNICEF, Bellamy was Director of the United States Peace Corps. Having served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala from 1963 to 1965, she was the first former volunteer to run the organization.

Trained in corporate law and finance, Bellamy has also worked for Bear Stearns and Morgan Stanley and spent 13 years as an elected public official, including five years in the New York State Senate. In 1978, she became the first woman to be elected President of the New York City Council, a position she held until 1985.

Bellamy earned an undergraduate degree from Gettysburg College and law degree from New York University and is a former Fellow of the Institute of Politics at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government. Ms. Bellamy graduated from Gettysburg College in 1963.

World Learning is dedicated to promoting international understanding, social justice and sustainable development. It is comprised of four operating divisions: School for International Training (SIT), The Experiment in International Living, World Learning for Business, and World Learning for International Development.

The School for International Training (SIT) prepares graduate students and professionals to be interculturally effective leaders, professionals, and citizens by offering degree and certificate programs in teaching, conflict transformation, sustainable development, organizational management, international education, and social justice in intercultural relations.

Friends of the Peace Corps 170,000  strong Date: April 2 2005 No: 543 Friends of the Peace Corps 170,000 strong
170,000 is a very special number for the RPCV community - it's the number of Volunteers who have served in the Peace Corps since 1961. It's also a number that is very special to us because March is the first month since our founding in January, 2001 that our readership has exceeded 170,000. And while we know that not everyone who comes to this site is an RPCV, they are all "Friends of the Peace Corps." Thanks everybody for making PCOL your source of news for the Returned Volunteer community.
