Community Service: Local vs. Global
Choosing to do community service is a great first step. Choosing where to do community service is a much more difficult endeavor, but one that can also provide the greatest rewards.
While local opportunities are extraordinarily beneficial to communities in North America and Western Europe, in developing countries there aren't nearly as many organizations or government institutions working to improve the lives of their citizens. Volunteering locally can be a wonderful helping hand. Volunteering globally can be a lifeline to those who don't have anywhere else to turn.
At Global Leadership Adventures, we encourage teens to volunteer in both ways. Service trips for teens in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and The Caribbean can provide you with the opportunity to leave legacy projects in your host country, while also picking up valuable skills and insights that will make your volunteering closer to home even more meaningful.
