Anthony Jewett

Education Entrepreneur

As part of his quest to make international exchange financially accessible to 50,000 underserved U.S. students by 2020, Jewett has built the National Center for Global Engagement to provide quality international-exchange management services for high-needs schools across America. To date, Jewett has mobilized more than $2.5 million in financial and in-kind support, earned fellowships from Echoing Green and the Tides Foundation, and is pursuing a doctorate in education leadership at Harvard University.

“He is fueled by the belief that the future of our nation—indeed, our world—depends squarely on our ability to equip every student with the critical world perspectives, intercultural competencies, and foreign-language skills necessary for effective leadership in the 21st century,” Irvin said by email. “When this work is successful, the implications for every sector—from nonprofits to business to public policy—will be long-lasting and profound.”
