Q: What year did Global Works set out on their first adventure, and what was the purpose of this trip?
A: Global Works was founded in 1989 by Pam and James “Biff” Houldin. Puerto Rico was the destination for the first service program. In an unfortunate coincidence, Hurricane Hugo devastated much of Puerto Rico that September. Amidst the devastation, Biff realized that meaningful service and cultural exchange might be achieved through the reconstruction of homes after this terrible storm. In the summer of 1990, 25 students and 5 staff embarked for Puerto Rico!
