The peoples of the world are one people, enriched by individual differences, united by the common bond of humanity. The diversity of the Global Community is its greatest strength; understanding and respect are its greatest gifts.
- Our Philosophy
Global Citizens Network works to promote peace, justice and respect through cross-cultural understanding and global cooperation. We are committed to enhancing quality of life around the world while preserving indigenous cultures, traditions and ecologies.
Join us; volunteer around the world. Work side-by-side and build relationships with members of our indigenous partner communities in the U.S. and abroad. GCN is a 501(c)(3) organization based in the United States. Participate in community development projects driven by the community.
Join us in celebrating more than 20 years of life-changing journeys.
"I've never witnessed such kindness, such sweetness—with and for each other. I am so grateful to GCN—for helping us thru every moment of this trip —for leading us to this incredible group of people. I have a new outlook in life.
Thank you everyone for making this trip so incredible. I’m so proud of our girls for going thru this with so much openness + flexibility + courage.
I’ll miss you all. Thank you leaders!!" —Alisa, GCN Trip Participant, Xiloxochico, Mexico July 2014
