Carmel Valley teen to attend 2011 One Young World Summit

Morgan Hicks


In an effort to empower an emerging youth leader in the field of international philanthropy, the International Community Foundation has sponsored Morgan Hicks, an 18-year- old resident of Carmel Valley and a senior at the Bishop’s School in La Jolla, to represent the International Community Foundation at the One Young World Summit in Zurich, Switzerland, in early September. Hicks will be joined by over 1,600 other “under 25s” from every country across the globe including 94 other delegates from the United States.
One Young World is the world’s first global youth leadership summit, aiming to bring together delegates aged 25 and under from every one of the world’s 192 countries. One Young World combines the social power of the internet with the energy and ideas of global youth to address the most challenging issues of today.
One Young World focuses on plenary sessions at which delegates are guided by a group of international luminaries including former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan; Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu; musician activist Bob Geldof; Nobel Peace Prize Winner Muhammad Yunus; Crown Prince Haakon of Norway and Doctors without Borders Co-Founder, Bernard Kouchner among others.
The inaugural One Young World summit took place in London between Feb. 8-10, 2010. The Second Annual One Young World Summit will be held in Zurich, Switzerland from Sept. 1-4, 2011.
“The One Young World summit is a unique international convening that brings together some of the most inspirational emerging young leaders from across the globe” said Richard Kiy, president & CEO of the International Community Foundation. Kiy noted that the International Community Foundation is proud to have Morgan Hicks representing our institution in Zurich.
The International Community Foundation sponsorship of Morgan Hicks comes as a result of her voluntary service and philanthropic efforts in collaboration with the International Community Foundation over the past two-and-a-half-years to launch the Youth International Philanthropy Council (YIPC), and helping to raise monies leading to the construction of a playground benefiting IPODERAC, A.C, a Puebla, Mexico based charity providing an alternative home for abandoned and neglected children and youth.
Over the past summer, Morgan has been working with the International Community Foundation in the development of “The Teenager’s Guide to International Giving” which will be published in October 2011. The International Community Foundation’s sponsorship of Hicks to the One Young World Summit was made possible through the generous support of donor Antonio Diaz through his San Diego-Tijuana Talented Youth Opportunities Fund at the International Community Foundation.
