Global Citizens Network, a 501(c)(3) organization, strives to develop creative and effective local solutions to global problems by providing opportunities for individuals to interact with people of diverse cultures who share common global values. GCN recognizes the interdependence of people around the world. Social and economic injustice, racial and ethnic inequality, and ecological loss affect all people. But through cooperative effort, individuals of all cultures can enhance their ability to make a difference locally and globally.
At just about every corner of Rio de Janeiro, you will find the locals playing Brazil’s national sport: futebol; but now you can be a part of the team as a volunteer on one of our sports programs. Athletics have become vital for Rio’s lowest income communities, as they provide children and adolescents with recreational outlets in neighborhoods that offer young people very few options for entertainment.
