The Global Service Leaders

Meridian’s Global Service Leaders (GSL) Division motivates and connects emerging leaders from around the world to address community challenges through volunteerism. The GSL Division helps volunteer leaders strengthen their role as leaders in their community, and connects these aspiring leaders to a global community of peers and mentors. GSL also supports members in their application of best practices, helps them develop important leadership skills, and provides them the network and resources to overcome inevitable challenges. GSL has also developed a model for convening current and emerging leaders from all sectors to explore how volunteerism can be scaled to address increasingly complex social challenges. Developed and implemented in partnership with U.S. Embassies around the world, this replicable model will move around the globe to target key issues, connecting local participants with their counterparts in the U.S. and throughout the region.
