Volunteer, Intern, Study Abroad where what you learn makes a difference in the communities you serve.
Global Service Corps enticed me because unlike most service abroad programs that I had researched, its service is uniquely tied to learning. I liked the idea of learning about Bio Intensive Agriculture and then passing on my newly acquired skills and knowledge to others. We went into rural communities and taught families how to create sustainable vegetable gardens on very small plots of land. They can grow a year’s supply of nutritious vegetables, and do so using farming techniques that don’t depend on outside assistance in seed and fertilizers. In the end, I taught others a valuable skill and received the same skill myself.
