Global Brigades is such an amazing organization and I am so grateful to be a part of this organization. I’ve learned so much about what international sustainable development really means and how much of an impact we can make when we work together. Being on this Executive Board with other dedicated individuals really motivates and inspires you to think globally and challenge the perceptions of developing countries.
The 2018-2019 Eboard is motivated to working with passionate volunteers to make these trips accessible as we believe everyone should have the opportunity to travel and learn from our fellow brothers and sisters abroad. The aim of Global Brigades is not just to go into a country for 7 days and offer medical aid and leave, but to contribute to a larger program that empowers the communities of the respective countries to lift themselves out of poverty and advance their lives. Although being on the Eboard is a time commitment, it never feels like a job; rather, it feels like the most productive and important use of my time at college. Thank you to the Eboard of 2018-2019!
