about the program

Global service-learning provides students with an opportunity to learn while working on a meaningful volunteer project that addresses an authentic community need in a foreign country.  By immersing ourselves in another culture to volunteer for positive social change, young people will be better prepared to work within our city of Newburgh to make it a better place.

In past years, student participants have gone on to create and facilitate a Newburgh Youth Leadership Summit, start a free tutoring program for Newburgh youth, speak on numerous panels about their work, engage in projects supporting local grassroots organizations and take leadership roles in the My Brother’s Keeper program.  In 2019, they were finalists in a competition to win $100,000 to create a shared public learning space in Newburgh that traces and celebrates the city’s rich history.
