Global to Local
on behalf of Kevin Rothman
Global service-learning provides students with an opportunity to learn while working on a meaningful volunteer project that addresses an authentic community need in a foreign country.  As we immerse ourselves in another culture to volunteer for positive social change, we become better prepared to work within our city of Newburgh to make it a better place.


The 2019 Global to Local cohort, including students and teachers, will travel to northern Thailand with Into the Wild, Inc., where we will volunteer alongside the program’s founder, Kim White.  He has established partnerships with non-governmental organizations who have been working to support refugees fleeing violence and ethnic cleansing in Burma. As we join in these ongoing projects, we plan to engage in the construction of houses for new arrivals, raise money for construction materials, and learn firsthand about the refugee experience.


Because we believe that service-learning should be accessible to young people regardless of economic status, our program is exclusively funded through donations like yours, so every dollar counts!


$25 will purchase construction tools

$50 will pay for the group’s transport to the village from Chiang Mai

$100 will purchase building materials for a local house

$500 will pay for one student’s food and lodging for two weeks in Northern Thailand

$1000 will pay for one student’s plane ticket to Thailand


Upon our return to Newburgh, New York, these same students will work as project managers for local Community Impact Projects.  Past cohorts of Global to Local have participated in service-learning projects in Quito, Ecuador , and Siem Reap, Cambodia ; click on the links to see reflections on those experiences.  Follow us on Twitter  for updates on our work and thank you for your support!
