Misha Malyshev: Global Youth Service Day

Global Youth Service DayIn honor of Global Youth Service Day, newly joined member of the After-School All-Stars Board of Directors, Misha Malyshev, discusses why teaching youth to give back is important in today’s society.  Misha Malyshev stated it is imperative to promote education and good values, so that future generations can utilize this combination to negotiate our trade deals, lead our companies, seek solutions to our conflicts, teach their own children, and in general benefit their community and society as a whole.

“The current competitive climate is one of unparalleled intensity, thanks to our ever-increasing interconnectedness. Today’s competition is truly global. Researchers, authors, scholars, advocates and politicians on every continent have rightly concerned themselves with the multitude of challenges that this global marketplace creates. Who will reap the rewards in a global economy? How do we ensure that we have a fair and equitable structure so that the most creative, inventive and dynamic people and ideas rise to the top? How do we guarantee that we don’t fall behind? These challenges are not new; individuals and nations have grappled with them throughout history. What are new are the global consequences of getting it wrong.
To get it right for the long term, it is imperative that we promote education and cultivate good values in future generations. These future generations will utilize that powerful combination to negotiate our trade deals, lead our companies, seek solutions to our conflicts, teach their own children, and in general benefit their community and society as a whole.”
