Global Volunteers
November 9, 2012

I have been a Global Volunteers team leader since 2000. I have lead about 50 teams.......and I am passionally dedicated to the philosophy of the organization. Among the many goals is to build relationships and friendships between people.....one person at a time. When we go to a site....we go as "servant learners" meaning we do what the community wants us to do....and we respectfully follow their direction. I have met extraordinary people in each community I have volunteered in. The men and women on the teams I have lead are equally dedicated to the work we do.....so I see many of the same people on other teams. My husband and I went on our first team to Xian China in 1999. I have been a loyal volunteer ever since.

Global Volunteers
March 31, 2012

I have been a team leader for Global Volunteers for 12 years. My husband and I went on our first team with Global Volunteers to Xian China in 1999. I volunteered at a private school teaching English and my husband worked with a group of business men and women. It was our first experience volunteering with a non profit organization. We were so impressed with the integrity of the organization. Everything they told us was as they said. We were sent valuable and useful information that shared with us the philosophy of the organziation. We found their goals and values to be exactly what we were looking for. The goal of the organiation was to build friendships and promote peace....one person and one community at a team. We had a team leader who guided us through team building meetings.....and then saw to it that we were taken care of for the three weeks we volunteered. We stayed in comfortable accomodations....were treated to decilcious meals and were assigned to interesting work sites. We have maintained email relationships with many of the people we met in the community. I was so impressed with the organization that I have since become a volunteer team leader. I went through an intensive training program in St. Paul MN.....and over the past twelve years have lead about fifty teams. I am more and more committed to the philosphy of the organization.....being servant learners....doing what the community asks of us and following directions in a respectful way. I am very proud to be a Global Volunteer.
