Global Volunteers is the "Granddaddy of the volunteer vacation movement" according to USA Today. The co-founder Michele Gran will discuss the unique approach of Global Volunteers, which is based on the idea that volunteers of every age can address hunger, health, poverty and educational issues at the community level around the world. Since 1984, almost 35,000 Global Volunteers have worked in over 200 communities in 35 countries on six continents teaching English, building schools, health clinics and water systems, caring for children, supplying pregnant women and new mothers with gardens and building personal relationships and experiences for all participants. Working in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations since 1999 and UNICEF since 2008, the vision has remained that international volunteers focused upon waging peace and promoting justice through working toward better lives for children women and communities make a difference. Michele will describe the story of Global Volunteers and how everyone can be a Global Volunteer..
