Global Ties KC is excited to welcome our second delegation of the new year on February 1! This multi-regional group, comprised of delegates from Egypt, Greece, Haiti, Iceland, Kenya, and the Palestinian Territories, will be visiting the Kansas City to examine the topic of "Volunteerism in the U.S." Specifically, the group will be looking to accomplish the following objectives:
- To examine the impact of volunteerism in U.S. communities and how volunteers are inspired to help foster a culture of service, civic involvement and responsibility;
- To observe and discuss best practices in volunteer recruitment, retention and management;
- To encourage mutual sharing of information to further voluntary initiatives among international NGOs; and
- To experience volunteer opportunities alongside American citizens of all ages and backgrounds.
