Local Brigades is a new program that was started in spring 2016 to supplement Global Brigades' numerous international service trips with short, inexpensive, and highly educational service trips to local nonprofits. Our goal is to expand the impact Washington University students make in the greater St. Louis community, while encouraging learning from the diversity of our peers. We encourage all students to enroll in both international and local brigades.
Note: We are always open to new suggestions for local brigades. If you would like to offer a suggestion and/or lead a local brigade, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
