Adrian Sealey is an IVLP alumnus from Trinidad and Tobago who builds community resilience. In 2017, Sealey participated in an IVLP project that brought community leaders from across the world together to share best practices and learn municipal-level approaches to countering violent extremism and radicalization.
Inspired by efforts he witnessed in the United States to build a culture of kindness, Sealey returned to Trinidad and Tobago and began engaging young men in the neighborhood of Chaguanas, encouraging them to volunteer in their neighborhoods. Sealey co-founded Ryu Dan Dojo and Youth Empowerment Centre, a community engagement center for at-risk youth.
