MSB-Richfield’s Global Citzenship Class Inspired by Field Trip

Posted by on August 18, 2011

What started as a simple field trip turned into an eye-opening and inspiring experience.

Patrice Bailey took his Global Citizenship class to Impact Lives, a non-profit based in St. Louis Park that “seek to improve the impact of short-term humanitarian efforts locally and throughout the world by connecting organizations with cross-cultural service opportunities in order to provide impoverished individuals and families with food, water, shelter, essential medical care, education, leadership training and mentorship programs.”

The students got a first-hand experience of the leadership training and service-learning opportunities Impact Lives offers. Last year, Impact Lives packaged over 10 1/2 million lifesaving meals that they delivered all over the world.

“I enjoyed meeting Dan yesterday at our trip to Impact Lives. It is refreshing to meet people like that who are so caring, passionate and concerned about other people, rather than just themselves.  Leaving there makes you want to jump right in and try to save the world,” student, Emily Gibbs said.

Bailey hopes to return to Impact Lives later this quarter to volunteer to package food. For more information on Impact Lives please visit, and for information on service-learning opportunities at Minnesota School of Business please visit
