International Trends & Services

Mission

The National mission of the International Trends and Services Facet is to expand the global platform for programs designed and developed to service the educational, health, and cultural needs of people of African descent throughout the world.  In line with this National mission The Brunswick (GA) Chapter of the Links, Inc. developed the program entitled:  Expanding the Links’ Presence: The Brunswick (GA) Chapter’s Approach.

 

Expanding the Links’ Presence: The Brunswick (GA) Chapter’s Approach

International Business Careers Forum – This was a Links sponsored workshop for 11th and 12th grade high school students to introduce high school students to international career choices. This program was held on February 21, 2014 in conjunction with the College of Coastal Georgia. Fifty seven students from all 4 local area public high schools attended the workshop. This program represents The Brunswick (GA) Chapter’s LIFE program (Links International Business and Foreign Affairs Empowerment Program).  The LIFE program is a National initiative.  A scholarship incentive was offered to students in attendance. This program will be continued next year.

 

Survival Kits to Haiti – As part of a National initiative, the Brunswick (GA) Chapter assembled 200 Survival Kits each filled with approximately eleven toiletries. These were shipped to women and girls in Haiti in an attempt to help preserve their dignity. The Chapter partnered with MAP International and Much Ministries to carry out this program. Other community supporters included:  Family Dollar, Norwich Street, Parker’s Village, Zion Baptist Church, Dr. and Mrs. Kenyon Meadows, and Alumna Member, Link Harriett Brown.

 

Medical Links to Haiti:  The Train the Trainer Project – The Brunswick (GA) Chapter partnered with MAP International to design a medical training activity for local physicians to spend one week studying health needs of Ghanaians in local villages and hospitals/clinics in Ghana. The goal being to train these local physicians so that they can become better prepared to provide health care to local West African Immigrants and also to have them return to Ghana in the future to provide health care and also train Ghanaian health care providers and students.  Continuing Medical Education Units and CEUs were applied and awarded for this activity through The Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University.

 

Expanding the Links’ Presence Locally – The International Trends & Services Facet will provide a workshop on volunteerism as a part of National Trends & Services’ Women’s Empowerment Workshop.  The speakers will be Faith Dingle of United Way, who will speak on local and national volunteerism, and Cheryl Nelson, of MUCH Ministries, who will speak on international volunteerism.
