My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Global Brigades Inc, Fresno, CA, USA
What better way to learn and give back to communities in need in Honduras, Panama, Ghana, and Nicaragua than to have the opportunity to take the knowledge you have learned in school and apply it to the real world?
I have been on a total of five brigades and, as cliche as this may sound, my world has turned upside down. Having been on five out of the ten initiatives offered within Global Brigades, I was able to see the effect of how the brigades offered lead to sustainable communities and sustainable student leadership all across the United States. As a student who is deeply interested in making a tangible impact and being able to see the end result of a project that is being worked on is what makes this organization a road map to living a life of powerful, meaningful, and inspirational work. The joyful and loving communities that welcome us are a pleasure to work in. The faculty and staff in these countries as well as on the board of directors here in the United States are always looking for ways to make our experiences as empowering and fulfilling as possible. I am looking forward to continuing my leadership as a volunteer within Global Brigades.
