Act Local, Act Global

Think of the popular slogan, "Think Globally, Act Locally".

If we operate effectively at a local level in terms of connecting young energetic people with local businesses, non-profits and other organizations then we can take the model globally by providing the same talent to organizations across the world. We can connect the local talent with international partners through the internet on a project by project basis. We still keep a personal connection because we (the social consultants) are working locally with that talent.

Check out this site:

It is a UN agency that matches volunteers with international organizations or projects. It is a really cool idea, but there doesn't seem to be a personal connection between anyone. I think you need that motivation sometimes to keep working.

Peace,
Nick
