GOOD NEWS CORPS
GNCorps is an IYF overseas volunteering initiative that develops a true global mindset in the next generation’s leaders. GNCorps is a unique opportunity for college-aged men and women to travel abroad and directly engage in all aspects of foreign culture: language, cuisine, music, architecture, sports, and traditional performance.
Through 10 months of service, GNCorps volunteers develop a global perspective and gain a genuine heart to serve others. GNCorps also works to advance collaboration and international exchange, as well as provide services that improve quality of life, education, and spirit for natives of each participating nation.
IT STARTED WITH 14 YOUNG PEOPLE WHO TOOK THE CHALLENGE
The first GNCorps volunteers were dispatched in 2002 and returned a year later with amazing testimonials from living among natives, connecting with them heart-to-heart, and seeing parts of the world they never knew existed. GNCorps now dispatches volunteers from all over the world. GNCorps volunteers travel to and from Africa, Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Oceania.
