Global Citizen Year is a non-profit social enterprise forging a new educational pathway for emerging leaders. We offer an experience filled with discovery, perspective, adventure, and independence. In one year you join a family, work in your local community, learn a new language, receive training from thought leaders, form a lifelong network, and make an authentic impact on a community worlds away from your own.
In Senegal community is a way of life. Time is fluid. And terranga (Wolof for hospitality) undelies every interaction. Take a step back from the deadlines and individualism of the West and learn to see the world - and yourself - in a whole new way.
