About Local to Global
Local to Global is a networking opportunity for early career professionals in the Greater Houston area, aged 21 to 40, who are interested in furthering their understanding of international events and issues as well as expanding their global connections.
Local to Global events are informal and emphasize discussion and dialogue in a community of like-minded early career professionals. As a global city, Houston is the ideal location to develop international contacts and network with other young professionals across the region.
International Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer your time and expertise with international nonprofit organizations such as IEDA Relief – an international nonprofit organization that works to establish a stable environment and implements sustainable solutions that help people in need to become self-sufficient – and Yazda – a multi-national Yazidi global organization established in the aftermath of the Yazidi Genocide in 2014, to support the Yazidi ethno-religious minority and other vulnerable groups.
