More Than 22,500 Volunteers Followed Their Why on Global Days of Service 2016

Every step forward begins with an idea. Can ideas make a difference? Members of the Walden community know each idea and action can make a positive impact. During October 17–23, our Global Days of Service inspired more than 22,500 faculty, staff, students, and alumni, as well as their friends and family, to participate in community service projects around the world and follow their why.

Because of their commitment to changing the world for the better, members of the Walden and Laureate communities in 16 countries contributed more than 220,000 volunteer hours in more than 220 service projects. Projects included:

  • Remodeling a faculty lounge, creating book nooks, and refreshing paint in student locker rooms and bathrooms at North Bend Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore.
  • Designing and building community spaces in Italy.
  • Cooking for parents and families of sick children at the Ronald McDonald House in Amsterdam.
  • Hosting an event for abandoned children in Gdansk, Poland.
  • Partnering with Pillsbury United Communities to work on a mosaic in Minneapolis.
  • Creating hygiene kits for Haven for Hope in San Antonio.
  • Providing vital health education courses in Brazil.

Thank you to all of our volunteers for helping to make a positive impact in communities around the globe. Walden and Laureate employees are proud to do their part to inspire action.
