The school, held from June 20-23, 2017 at Mariapolis Luminosa in Hyde Park, NY, was organized and staffed by the EoC North America Commission. 25 were in attendance, including young men and women from across the U.S., a couple from Mexico, and a number of interns and students from south and central America.

Attendees spoke at the end about their key take-aways from the school, such as:

–Building community170620 24 Hyde Park SS Convegno USA 24 rid
–Gratitude for the opportunity to learn about the EoC
–Matching up needs with resources

In describing some of the steps they  would like to take following the school experience, several ideas were mentioned including:

–Seeking to apply the EoC principles in their workplace, even in non-EoC companies
–Continuing their personal and professional development
–Creating a business plan for a possible EoC business idea
–Sharing what they learned with others
–Becoming an agent of contribution

The school featured several EoC business owners and business professors in higher education as the faculty, and included panel discussions, self-awareness tools, examining one’s personal mission, workshops on EoC principles, and practical steps for bringing ideas to the market.
