How to Get Involved

Start a Chapter

By starting a Global Brigades Chapter on a new university campus, you have the opportunity to earn a scholarship to cover your Donation Goal to participate in a brigade. Becoming a Chapter President provides incredible leadership experience and a chance to inspire other students on your campus to make change.


Join a Leadership Institute

Attending our Leadership Institute is your chance to experience a life changing opportunity abroad that will deepen your understanding of international development. Your journey won’t stop there! After getting a behind the scenes look at our programs, you will return home as an equipped leader with resources to grow the Global Brigades movement on your campus.
