Charles Fisher-PostSocial Impact Fellow
Winter-weary New Englander, Bay-Area enthusiast. Throws lefty, bats righty. Fraternal twin. If he hasn’t been there, he probably wants to go.
A second-year McCourt Scholar at the Georgetown University McCourt School of Public Policy, Charles’ MPP coursework focuses on policy analysis.
Previously, Charles helped a nonprofit organization found the first Afghan-led boarding school for girls in Afghanistan. He wrote program reports for grants worth more than $2.6 million, and developed communications for a network of more than 2000 donors and friends of the organization. He created an anti-violent extremism curriculum, and supervised the implementation of workshops in Dari and Pashto for 200 students in 10 high schools. He also established an online tutoring program for more than 40 students in Kabul, with a virtual community of more than 100 volunteer e-tutors across 12 time zones.
This past semester, Charles interned as a researcher on multilateral development institutions at the Center for Global Development. Previously he worked as a researcher investigating landmark preservation policy and development “air” rights for a property management firm in Manhattan.
Product of ABRHS, Charles earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Harvard University. After summers on the road for Let’s Go Travel Guides, and semesters at Ashesi College and the University of Granada, Charles taught English in South Korea and Saudi Arabia. When not pondering adventures to blank spaces on the map, Charles nerds out on history audiobooks and sports statistics, or explores parks with his wife, Beth, and their people-shy staffy, Lucy.
