Join us this summer in our global headquarters building to get a behind-the-scenes look at how Mercy Corps helps build strong communities from within - now and in the future.

Explore some of the world's toughest challenges. Dig into the roots of poverty, hardship and conflict. Examine how these issues impact our world, and take action alongside local organizations making a difference in the Portland community.

We will spend each morning examining global challenges and community development tools through interactive workshops and guest speakers. Afternoons will be in the field learning and taking part in local community projects.

Meet new people, challenge yourself - even gain service hours for high school and college! We can't wait for you to be a part of this life-changing week with us. Register today!
