During the first week of January, when most college students are lounging at home nursing New Year’s Eve hangovers and enjoying meals and laundry courtesy of mom, 60 California students will be working with the Berkeley-based non-profit Project Pueblo to help rebuild a Navajo Nation community devastated by a 43-year federal ban on development.

The founder of Project Pueblo is 28-year-old Sean Wycliffe. In 2002, Wycliffe was mid-way through his second year at Cal when he opted dropped out to oversee the expansion of a marketing business he’d started on the side. “I wanted to be financially independent,” Wycliffe said, “and I knew I had a good idea, so I just went for it.” Allowing himself to pursue his spontaneous instincts paid off; the business generated over $1 million in new revenue during his first year.

When he returned to Berkeley five years later, it wasn’t long before Wycliffe’s entrepreneurial tendencies kicked in again. His minor in Global Poverty required field work, and while his peers stressed about how they would save thousands of dollars to spend the summer in a developing country, Wycliffe wondered why he couldn’t use the money he would have spent traveling abroad to make a more direct impact.
