Participants travel abroad, locally, and across the United States to gain firsthand knowledge of local and foreign cultures; while examining globally significant issues, such as sustainable energy, the environment and climate change, food security and nutrition, the role of the media, entrepreneurship, science and technology.
Volunteers will be involved in the following scheduled activities with the children:
