Global Youth Network: fostering worldwide community and relationships
Our Global Team program offers young adults the opportunity to volunteer their time in communities both locally and abroad for one month trips.

Come join us on Wednesday's!
You can volunteer and then sit in on our lunch and learn for helpful tips and tricks from fellow gardeners.
After a bumpy ride through Ngong listening to Celine Dion on the local radio station, I stepped out of the matatu before a modest building into a swarm of hugs and affection. I couldn’t have even dreamed of a better welcome from a group of strangers, let alone friends. A couple of months after saying goodbye to Kenya and to the women at Living Positive, I still find myself having incredible hug withdrawals and urges to remind everyone that they are awesome – a ritual that I try to keep current among the cold crowds of London.
Wisahkotewinowak has created an interactive Tea Party Celebration to engage the community with a Pot-Luck event will include conversation and good laughs. Your entire family is welcome to attend. There will be a donation stand if you would like to support Global Youth Network!
Every year, Global Youth Network dispatches a couple dozen teams of students from Canadian universities in May, for a month of cultural exchange. After a month in Burkina Faso in 2008 and the year after in Cambodia, I switched gears in late 2009 deciding instead to learn about communities in the country I call home.
