In 1987 we got a letter from a group of soon-to-graduate MBAs at the Lauder Institute of the Wharton Business School, embarking on their highly-privileged careers, and they specifically said they didn’t want to do “MBA stuff.” They wanted to do physical labor next to the people of a different culture. At that time there was a project we wanted to help with in Dominica, to build a small soy dairy. We had a budget of $15,000 to do it and we didn’t have the money. Also, the students would have to cover their airfares and all expenses for three weeks on the island. It was already February and they wanted to work in May. They didn’t bat an eye. Within weeks they had the $15,000 thanks to a $7,500 donation from Leonard Lauder, co-founder of the Lauder Institute with his brother Ronald, and $7,500 from investment banker James Wolfenson who a few years later would be the President of the World Bank. The money needed for expenses was raised from family members of the students and fundraising on the University campus. They went and did a great job and their effort kicked off several years of MBA graduates, mostly from Wharton but also Stanford and MIT, volunteering with Plenty in Dominica as well as on Pine Ridge and in Belize. Today, admirably, most colleges and universities have some kind of volunteer program for students to take part in.
