My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Global Brigades Inc, Fresno, CA, USA
I joined a chapter of Global Brigades at my university my freshman year, and remained involved with various brigades chapters and positions in the organization. So far I have had the opportunity to go on two brigades with the organization, both of which have been absolutely incredible. On my time on a leadership institute in Honduras, I was able to see Global Brigades' commitment to planned obsolescence, working with and not for the community, avoiding voluntourism, and maintaining good relationships with the community to ensure that projects are maintained. I was also able to see the real impact in communities that GB visits by observing communities at various stages in the holistic model. Volunteering with Global Brigades has been an incredible experience, and I highly recommend that others get involved with a chapter near them.
