Global Perspectives Institute schedules Serve 2 Unite

HUNTSVILLE – The Global Perspectives Institute has scheduled a speaking engagement with representatives from Serve 2 Unite.

Randolph Upper School at 4915 Garth Road in Huntsville will host the event at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 30. Pardeep Singh Kaleka, a leader with Serve 2 Unite, will explain the group’s efforts, Suzanne Roten said. Roten serves as Operations Associate with Global Ties Alabama, the parent organization for the Global Perspectives Institute.

Pardeep Kaleka lost his father Satwant Singh Kaleka in a shooting on Aug. 5, 2012 at Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. Pardeep now works with Arno Michaelis, a former white supremacist who helped organize a gang in the late 1980s that produced the shooter at the temple.

The Serve 2 Unite program makes the practice of peace an attractive and valuable way of life, transforming schools and communities via fearless creativity and compassion and in interdependent partnership with local and global peace efforts, Roten said.

Serve 2 Unite is a proven means of establishing a healthy sense of identity, purpose and belonging, Roten said. The group diverts young people from violent extremist ideologies, gun violence, school shootings, bullying and substance abuse, along with other forms of self-harm.

Founded in 1965 in Huntsville, Global Ties Alabama helped international military trainees at Redstone Arsenal to feel at home. Organization leaders coordinated multi-cultural events in the Huntsville area. During the past 50-plus years, Global Ties Alabama has helped visitors and local residents to connect.

Global Ties tailors travel and program itineraries to meet the cultural and professional needs of international visitors, governments, companies and other visitors. As a nonprofit partner of the U.S. Department of State, Global Ties sustains a network that coordinates international exchange programs and brings current and future leaders from around the world to communities across Alabama.

Madison families frequently host welcome dinners for foreign visitors with Global Ties Alabama. Madison families often welcome teenagers as exchange students to live in their homes as the teens study history, government and the American culture.
