His book, The Art of Community, won the Nautilus Silver Award for Business and Leadership. Charles got his introduction in community building as a twenty-four-year-old full-time volunteer with a radical homeless shelter in Santa Ana, California. There he was stunned by the compassion and commitment of those doing thankless and nauseating work in the face of overwhelming need. All could only continue by serving in community. He went on to work on rural health care access and human rights as a US Peace Corps volunteer in Zambia, where he was mostly exhausted and overwhelmed. It was only later as a struggling documentary filmmaker in New York that new mentors taught him the importance and philosophy of building community for change. For the first time, his work and team achieved international success. His PBS documentary work touched on subjects from genocide education, school reform and civil rights advocacy. The training was critically important when he volunteered as a New York restaurant restaurant worker advocate after experiencing worker abuse himself. He holds a Master of Divinity from Yale where he studied spiritual traditions, philosophy, and business.Read more Read less
