Developing Global Citizens: My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Global Scholars

Developing Global Citizens: My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Global Scholars

Santa Fe College's Clock Tower on the Northwest Campus.

December 21, 2023 – The MBK Global Scholars Program is an innovative educational program that has helped make international education and study abroad programs more accessible to African-American students at Santa Fe College.

In this episode of the Developing Global Citizens podcast, two MBK students, Jamaal Baptiste and Kevin Savoi, discuss how they have grown in their global knowledge, intercultural competence and international experiences.

“The more I meet our guests,” Baptiste said, “the more I realize how human we are. I’ve only been in Florida, really. I’ve only lived in Florida. I haven’t traveled out of the country. But the more I meet our guests, it’s like, oh, it just makes me think that someone in another country is just a friend I haven’t met yet.” 

Savoi shared the same enthusiasm. “I believe international experiences are cool, but the international experience is an experience. So if somebody were to gain an international experience and bring it back to you, you can kind of live it through them.”
