Global Works Community Fund

OUR BACKGROUND

paintingGlobal Works Community Fund (GWCF) was founded in 2011 to provide opportunities for the empowerment of youth to spark social change through service learning, travel, and ongoing community development projects. With the overarching goal of facilitating social change in their partner communities at home and worldwide, GWCF provides scholarships to cover the financial obligation, so students ages 13-18, have the opportunity to participate in international travel programs focused on sustainable service projects, while discovering their own strengths and making personal connections. In addition, GWCF supports international community development. Our objective is to support existing projects with our partner communities and organizations through targeted funding and targeted action. GWCF is a volunteer driven, 501(c)3 organization.

OUR MISSION

To spark global awareness and inspire community engagement. We accomplish this by:

  • providing financial assistance to qualified, motivated young adults;
  • matching young adults with mentors within their community;
  • engaging young adults in service-learning experiences, at home and abroad; and,
  • working with partners to broaden our reach.

Service-Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. (National Service-Learning Clearinghouse).
