Leadership Breakfast Meeting
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Leaders of Industry, Non-Profits & Government, Young Professionals & Retired Leaders
Throughout his professional career, Conrad Mandsager has provided "on the ground" expertise to social service organizations in not for profit, for profit, and government sectors. His strong record of leadership and program development has assisted numerous organizations seeking aggressive growth in new and existing ventures that serve children at risk. Some of his credits include the development and launch of the first volunteer-run prison in the US, the development of the second largest mentoring program in the US for at-risk youth, design and launch of Wheels for the World, an international wheelchair refurbishing and distribution program providing wheelchairs to children in over 60 countries.
In 2006, Conrad founded ChildVoice International in response to the millions of children whose destinies are being destroyed by war. ChildVoice's programs recognize that someone must speak for the voiceless and devastated children who often are unable even to whisper the horror of becoming young victims of brutality and inhumanity. But more than speak, ChildVoice acts on the conviction that children beaten down by war can be restored in safe communities with loving care, spiritual and psychosocial counseling, and effective education and vocational training.
Currently, ChildVoiceis operating a multi-phase humanitarian aid project to assist the children victims of war, abduction, and slavery in northern Uganda. This project provides direct relief for child mothers - formerly abducted girls who bore children while in captivity -- and their infants through long-term rehabilitation which includes sanctuary, care, education, vocational training, and spiritual and emotional counseling. ChildVoice is also operating a number of community development projects with a focus on agriculture, health care, water and sanitation, and education.
