Each year since 2013, EO recognizes one outstanding member who embodies the heart and soul of volunteerism, and who paves the way for others to follow, through its EO Global Citizen of the Year Award. Past winners have helped orphans in Panama, removed tons of plastic from the Pacific and revolutionized healthcare in Africa.
In April 2017 at EO’s Global Leadership Conference in Frankfurt, Germany, Cameron Madill was named EO’s Global Citizen of the Year. He earned the honor for his work volunteering in a Texas prison for Central American refugees and his efforts in building a scalable venture philanthropy model that supports pro bono legal assistance to refugees around the U.S. with a goal of growing from three sites to more than 100 by the end of 2018. We caught up with Cameron to learn more about his work as a social entrepreneur.
