Join MINN for a Talk and Tour of Global Volunteers to get an in-depth look at the organization in a small group setting. The agenda includes an overview of the organization by Michele Gran, Co-Founder and Senior Vice President of Global Volunteers, and a private tour of their office.
Global Volunteers is a US-based, private, nonprofit international development organization in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. Global Volunteers pioneered short-term international service programs of one to three weeks to enable regular people to help create, nurture and sustain the well-being of children worldwide. Since 1984, more than 35,000 volunteers have served hundreds of communities in 35 countries on six continents.

Short-term volunteer teams work alongside local community members on long-term development projects that are decided on and directed by local leaders from our host communities. Teams work on a variety of projects, ranging from teaching conversational English to planting gardens and improving community infrastructure. Global Volunteers welcomes volunteers of all backgrounds and all ages to help promote peace and justice through international service.

The MINN Talk and Tour (T&T) is an opportunity for MINN members to gain first-hand knowledge of the workings of international NGOs in the state. The T&T agenda is simple. Employees of an international NGO offer a private tour of their facility and then field questions about their organization’s work and their office culture. While MINN T&Ts are a minimal fee and open to MINN Members, space is limited, and registration is required. Please consider joining the hundreds of international professionals who already have a MINN membership. Click here to join.
