Join Mercy Corps staff at the Action Center for an active and eye-opening week exploring global issues and building community projects. Mercy Corps, an international humanitarian aid organization based in Portland, specializes in community-based development projects in more than 40 countries around the world.
Take the first steps in learning how major global issues like food security, economic development and climate change are relevant in your own community.
We will spend each morning examining global issues through interactive workshops, guest speakers and multi-media exhibits. Afternoons will be in the field observing, and taking part in community projects. Meet new people, explore Portland and learn about the globe! For students entering 9th -12th grade.
