About the organization

GLOCAL is a grassroots initiative formed by a group of young Canadians that saw challenges in our democratic platforms and decided to help residents in Canada be globally aware and locally engaged. 


We are alumni of the University of British Columbia, University of Toronto, McGill University, Simon Fraser University, McMaster University, and Queen’s University. Our goal is to work with and support our fellow Canadians in bringing about a more inclusive, transparent, accessible, and engaging democratic participation with a global understanding.

Impact

The volunteer will have the opportunity to work with the GLOCAL executive team to help achieve the mission of creating opportunities for Canadians of of diverse backgrounds to apply their global vision, professional expertise, and local knowledge in ways that improve cross-cultural understanding and creative problem-solving.


You will have the opportunity to empower residents in Canada to integrate a solid, creative domestic engagement with a nuanced global understanding in politics, business, academics and philanthropy.
