Global Brigades Events

In order to celebrate #GB365, Global Brigades hosts year round engagement events to connect those interested in learning more about Global Brigades, current staff and volunteers, and GB alumni through Student Leadership Conferences and Global Leadership Institutes. We hope to see you soon!

Student Leadership Conferences

Being a Global Brigades volunteer means so much more than participating in your one week brigade and we really encourage you all to continue engaging as global citizens each and every day. One way that you can stay involved year round is by attending a Global Brigades Student Leadership Conference. Global Brigades conferences bring together leaders, staff members, board members and prospective volunteers to share best practices, learn more about Global Brigades’ sustainable development model, and think critically about volunteering abroad. This year we are working on setting up some virtual student leadership conferences so please check back regularly to check on new 2020  Virtual SLC dates!
