Highlight From The Global Citizen Journal

Volume 1: Inaugural Edition

Joy Dance: I celebrate your joy.
This poem was written by Krista's good friend Jeremy in Santa Cruz, Bolivia for Krista Hunt Ausland on the night of Krista's death. Aaron Ausland writes: "Jeremy Funk was a co-worker of ours who was teaching in Bolivia. He has cerebral palsy, which may help you understand some of the imagery in his poem. He is a dear friend and a gifted writer, a gentleman and a scholar. This poem, this song of love and lamentation will always be very dear to me."

The Krista Foundation equips young adults with skills to transform service experiences into lives of service leadership.

Transitioning from a service year can be a disorienting experience. Through mentoring, a colleague community and re-integration services, the Krista Foundation helps young adults fully understand and employ the learnings from their service experience.

Our colleagues touch lives through hands-on volunteer service with organizations such as Peace Corps, AmeriCorps or Jesuit Volunteer Corps.

Our unique peer-mentoring model develops young Christian leaders during their pivotal 20-something years.

Our colleagues' insightful leadership positively shapes our global and local communities.
