On Wednesday, August 5, Hudson Institute's Bradley Center hosted summer interns and young staff members to a panel discussion launched in an unusual way - with a story. In Henri Barbusse's 1918 short story "The Eleventh" (required reading - click here to download), a young administrator at a luxurious high-end sanitarium is tasked with its most honored charitable tradition, admitting ten AND ONLY TEN "vagabonds" off the streets to enjoy its lavish accommodations for thirty days. He must turn the eleventh away. Is this task charitable at all, or is it part of some "evil deed," the young man asks himself.
To begin the August 5 discussion, the Bradley Center asked a panel of young "experts": What's it like to be young and on the front in the nonprofit sector? What should this young man do? The panel featured MINDY HERNANDEZ, formerly of the Carnegie Corporation and currently with Ideas42; EVAN SPARKS of the Philanthropy Roundtable; MELISSA JOHNSON of the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy; and the Bradley Center's KRISTA SHAFFER. Hudson Institute Senior Fellow AMY KASS served as the discussion's moderator.
