Rita Golden Gelman’s Birth of a Movement blog chronicles the development of “Let’s Get Global,” a movement “whose mission is to encourage and assist youth in the United States to have international experiences, particularly during the year between high school and the next phase of their lives.” If you can help with writing, organizing, brainstorming, or fundraising, Let’s Get Global is looking for volunteers.
