Michael Sean Krause
Occupation: NGO Capacity Builder
I grew up in Meridian, ID and graduated with honors from the College of Idaho in 2000. Upon graduation, I moved to Madison, WI and spent the next seven years working in various fields: performing arts, education and most notably as the executive director for Hostelling International- Wisconsin. I have a passion for grassroots cultural education and non-profit management. I left Madison in the fall of 2007 and moved to Portland, OR where I finalized my decision to serve as a Peace Corps volunteer. I will be working on HIV/AIDS Capacity Building Projects; specifically revolving around orphans and vulnerable children. In my spare time, I love playing soccer and various board/card games. I’m looking forward to building relationships with those in the community where I will be living and helping to foster sustainable programs, at the community level, that will aid in the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS in Botswana.
