I am 16 years old, my name is Noa and I went on the global works trip to panama. I really wanted to do a trip out of the country this year and my family and I stumbled upon global works online. Global works is an amazing program that I was so lucky to be a part of. Their efforts to incorporate culture, leadership, and community throughout the trips were what made it so special. I learned a lot about myself on the trip, and other cultures that were so different from mine. They made us think about real world issues, and how fortunate we are which really inspired me. Global works changed me in many ways, and the leaders in the group are so amazing. I would highly recommend this program. All of the people got so close at the end of the trip and the friendships and relationships I made on the trip are so important to me and I will never forget.
