Founded in 1993 by Baby Boomer Rick Lathrop during his mid-career transition, Global Service Corps (GSC) was envisioned as a “mini-Peace Corps” experience for fellow Baby Boomers. Since then, it has grown to include programs for students and recent grads in five different countries.
Presently, GSC offers short- and long-term volunteer and internship service-learning opportunities for adults in Tanzania and Thailand.
GSC volunteer participants are all trained to become trainers of local community members in one or more of the following areas: HIV/AIDS prevention, sustainable agriculture food security, nutrition, and English as a Second Language (ESL).
GSC also provides programs in youth AIDS prevention camps, Buddhist immersion and international health.
All GSC participants have the unique opportunity to live in homestays to participate in a true cultural immersion experience.
