Global Works Community Fund
Global Works Community Fund removes barriers to access and helps diverse youth find their voice in activism and community engagement. Students from BIPOC* communities often have less access to leadership development opportunities due to continuing inequity in resource distribution across systems - including school districts and neighborhoods. Global Works Community Fund seeks to dismantle this pattern through mentoring, global travel experiences, leadership opportunities, career development opportunities, and college-prep.
