Genesis' global appeal

Program attracts teens from as far away as Russia

Thanks to a grant from the Genesis Philanthropy Group, the high school program Genesis (no relation) at Brandeis University was able to welcome a group of Russian teenagers to campus this summer. The Moscow students join an already diverse group of teens that are a part of Genesis each year, coming from Canada, Spain, Israel and all over the U.S. As BrandeisNOW found out, this international mix makes for some engaging discussions in the classroom -- and long distance friendships outside of it.
