Global Citizens Network is committed to partnering with local, grassroots organizations that have invited GCN to work in their communities. All projects are under the direction of local leaders and initiated by local residents. Available shared work includes:
Global Citizens Network considers the project a vehicle to greater cultural understanding, international friendships and ultimately movement towards increased global cooperation. Often times while a team is working side-by-side another family, the children break away to play (soccer, baseball, hide-and-seek) and the parents sit down to a cup of tea with a host family— these activities provide for unmatched authentic cross-cultural sharing between local residents and volunteers. Working together towards a common goal is the most effective means to building trust and developing relationships. The shared project work is important, sustainable and valuable to the host community that has ownership over it.
Global Citizens Network partners with indigenous communities across the globe to create opportunities for individuals to gain understanding through cultural immersion. Participants live and work side-by-side with the members of their indigenous host community.
