Meet the Executive Director:
Traveling to Mexico and serving the people in that developing community transformed my thinking and begin to shape me as a globally competent individual . Global service learning projects offer academic experiences that cannot be replicated in the classroom. Exploring firsthand the cultural, economic, social and political structures of other nations will afford youth and adults the opportunity to develop their global consciousness in an authentic fashion.
We support developing communities because local governments lack the resources to meet the needs of every family. It takes the commitment and hard work of non-governmental agencies and selfless individuals just like us to work alongside community members to bring hope, transformation, and sustainability to a community marked by poverty and despair.
To actively engage youth and adults in local and global acts of service that support the social, economic and spiritual growth of men, women and children in developing communities.
By ensuring that churches and other community organizations are aware of local and global issues providing cross-cultural and civic engagement training to individuals and groups offering trans- local and cross-cultural service opportunities and engaging families and community organizations in collaborative relationships with community leaders in developing regions.
