In 2000, the Council formalized an Outreach Program to initiate involvement with local schools, both public and independent, this in the belief that promoting knowledge and understanding of global affairs and issues among young people is of vital importance to our country. Over these past years, the Council's Outreach Program has increased its efforts from simply having its lecturers speak at Collier schools, to offering a wide variety of programs. The Outreach Program is run by a committee of 22 volunteer Council members, who meet regularly during the season to plan and execute Outreach activities.
The Outreach Program is conducted by the following volunteers: Dan Bumstead (Chair), Donna Suddeth (vice-chair), Sharlene and Park Davis, Joe Donahue, Debbie Doyle, Marcia Easton, Mimi Gregory, Jan Guben, Judy Harper, Wendy Hodgson, Sophie Hewson, Jon Mohle, Pat Morrison, Linda Penniman, Rhona Saunders, Don Smith, Chuck Stuart, Aysegul Timur, Connie Van Den Top, Terry Trimble, and NancyWallace. Judith Lipnick participates ex officio.
