Julio’s humbling and powerful story launches Season 3 of The Social Change Career Podcast. He grew up in an area of high conflict in rural Colombia and through lots of smarts and lucky breaks he managed to end up in Bogota –the capital- and later in the U.S. where he completed his Masters in Divinity. Julio works in the intersection of faith, peace, reconciliation and poverty alleviation and unlike many who leave their humble origins and never return, Julio manages to develop local projects with youth from his town in an effort to create sustainable solutions for peace in one of the most dangerous areas in the country. Episode 1 of Season 3 of The Social Change Career Podcast is brought to you by The Rotary Peace Fellowship.
