New GSE Partnerships:

1. Future of Africa

Journey for Change is Future of Africa's annual service-learning trip that enables participants to experience first hand the issues, challenges, community, and culture of an African country. The service projects are aimed at creating opportunities for empowerment to make a sustainable investment in the future of children and youth. The trip is also intended to educate participants, attach personal relevance to their efforts and initiatives, and inspire action through spreading awareness and sharing their experiences following the trip.†

Journey for Change is designed in a three-part structure: Acclamitization, Projects and Wind down & Reflection. This helps to maximize the potential for impactful service, meaningful reflection, and effective learning during the trip. Visit for more details or email service with any questions. †
