Global Programs

Global Brigades promotes health and sustainable development work in Panama, Honduras, and Ghana. We holistically approach development, acknowledging that one discipline cannot solve every problem. Currently, we travel back to Honduras over spring break to work on various development projects. Contact Emily Nonnamaker, enonnama@tulane.edu

Mission Honduras works year-round with the Misioneros de Esperanza of San Pedro Sula to bring sustainable changes to the lives of the people of Merendon. Though the bi-annual student-run service trip to San Pedro Sula, Honduras and the aldeas of the Merendon Mountains trip is an extension of the Catholic Center at Tulane, Mission Honduras is open to members of all faiths. Contact Julianna Lewis, jlewis23@tulane.edu.

ONE @ Tulane is a campus chapter of ONE, a global advocacy organization founded by Bono. ONE members work to educate community members about foreign aid issues, including extreme poverty, hunger, energy poverty, and a lack of transparency. ONE at Tulane is especially unique and effective because we have strong partnerships with other ONE members in the community and from other schools. We participate in friendly competition with other schools’ ONE teams, and ONE leaders gather annually in Washington D.C. to advocate for foreign aid on Capitol Hill. Contact Nicole Heimberg, nheimber@tulane.edu

Global Public Health Brigades volunteers spend 7 days in Honduras, improving basic home infrastructure and providing health education to help reduce the incidences of life-threatening, but preventable, diseases in a rural community Contact Kendal Simonse, ksimonse@tulane.edu

The Global Service League raises awareness of international humanitarian issues, enabling the Tulane community to serve at the global level. GSL works through four primary focus-issue committees: Health, Education, Economic Opportunity, and Human Rights in Crisis. Committees meet on a weekly to biweekly basis to plan events addressing chosen issues within their focus category. Contact Anna Sanford, asanford@tulane.edu or globalserviceleaguetulane@gmail.com.

Tulane for UNICEF is a club that educates, advocates, and fund-raises for the UNICEF branch of the UN. This organization believes that no child should die from preventable causes and that we can end this. Contact Haley Bettinson, hbettins@tulane.edu.

Tulane Alternative Breaks (TAB)  is a unique network of alternative break programs that offers the opportunity to escape the Tulane bubble and embrace the unknown.  Whether you prefer to voyage across the world or stay close to home, our programs offer an immersive experience through which you will reflect on yourself and the world and return with a new perspective on life.  Get out of the house (or dorm) and make the most of your winter, spring, or summer break by meeting and working alongside community members, delving into the depths of a social justice issue, and exploring a new culture and way of life! Contact Karissa Chao, kchao1@tulane.edu.
