We know that we live in a giving, charitable community. Students come together to help the needy, and individuals and groups give their time and energy to reach out to those less fortunate.

While good intentions are important, being undiscerning about your adopted cause can mean that you expend a lot of time and energy without really doing much good – least of all for the people you would most like to help.

From the experience we have gained, Global Causeways can show you where and how to focus your efforts so that they can be most effective. For youths and volunteers, we provide the following introductory workshops:
