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 Don’t see one in your area? Email nicole.jollimore@globalbrigades.org to learn more about how you can host an SLC!

University Liaison Program Site Visits

We are excited to formally invite university personnel (i.e. admin, advisor, international office, faculty, risk dept) to join a Global Brigades site visit where you will have the opportunity to observe, evaluate, and explore the brigade experience in one of our programming countries. The purpose of the site visit is to afford university representatives and personnel the opportunity to obtain an in-depth understanding of all administrative, operational, and educational aspects of Global Brigades’ in-country programming and the sustainable impact volunteers, staff and community members are making.
