Global Business Brigades

Global Business Brigades is an organization that enables students to travel abroad and make a direct impact. Traveling to Panama, Honduras, or Ghana, a group of 10-20 students gets together to help teach business workshops in developing countries. Aside from gaining an exceptional cultural exchange with the community, students are able to test out their leadership skills in a real life setting, rather than reading about it in books. Global Brigades is a completely student-led organization that really makes a difference in the lives of others. As educated students, we have the ability to share our knowledge and resources with people who do not have access to these means.
