My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Global Brigades Inc, Fresno, CA, USA
I have been involved with Global Brigades for the past four years as a student at Saint Louis University. Global Brigades was the one club that I found on the SLU website before starting my first semester that I was very interested in. I became active in the organization during my first semester, and it did not disappoint. I went from not knowing whether I would be accepted to the first brigade that I applied for to now being a very active participant of the SLU GB executive board. My experiences with Global Brigades have definitely been some of the most impactful of my college career. These experiences have taught me that even when I believed that I had no skills or any use to offer that I could still be impactful. They taught me to always be open and learning. The time on my brigade in Ghana led me to create my own program with my University so that I could study abroad in Ghana. I have learned that I have friends and neighbors everywhere including Ghana, Honduras, Panama, and Nicaragua, that even if I have no other use that I have my energy to use, and I took away many skills from the program that I did not have before. I highly recommend this organization to anyone who is searching for an opportunity to make an impact in communities in Ghana, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama as well as anyone who is looking to learn skills and ideas to bring back to their own lives.
