Class of 2021
Born into a military family and moving quite often growing up, Kyle Clements ultimately settled in Florida, where he graduated summa cum laude at Florida State University, with a dual degree in International Affairs and Political Science. He is coming to GHD after an extended service of 33 months in Ukraine with the Peace Corps as a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) Volunteer. Based at a school in a town in Western Ukraine, Kyle worked with students, teachers, other volunteers and youth leaders at a regional youth center to administer a variety of seminars and lectures teaching leadership, language and business skills to the future leaders and entrepreneurs of Ukraine. One of his favorite projects was the creation of a youth volunteer organization out of his school that involved multiple trainings for the student body on volunteerism and project design management. The project culminated in the formation of a volunteer club that helped plan and run a fundraising event and a decoration/clean-up of the school grounds. Kyle is excited to be continuing his education and is hoping to get the skills and knowledge needed for a career in development.
