Creating a Path to Global Citizenship
This presentation or workshop is designed for those who are serious about global engagement. Prior international experience is helpful but not required. Prerequisites include a heart for service and a desire to be a life-long learner. Through the hands-on workshop version, participants will 1) discuss the complexities of crossing cultures and international development work, 2) identify their own learning style and begin seeking opportunities which stimulate personal growth and 3) begin to explore their own path to global citizenship, utilizing intuition, connections and personal goals. Carrie Wagner is the author of Village Wisdom: Immersed in Uganda, Inspired by Job, Changed for Life).

She is a native of North Carolina and worked with Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) for 11 years, serving in Uganda for three years, in South Africa for threeyears and as International Training Director. Her experience covers the spectrum of grassroots community development to international development and coordination of training programs in Africa, Latin America, Europe and Asia. Carrie and her husband and two sons left the US again in 2012, for a family sabbatical, to live in Peru and Ecuador for the year. The experience was documented in the family blog, GoGiveLearn.com.

“Thank you so much for what you’ve contributed to our program at OMS! The presentation was excellent… I really felt like they absorbed even more than I had anticipated from your talk! Some were even able to retell the meaning of “immersion” and they really understood the service “connection” piece. Teachers also commented on how much they enjoyed the presentation.”
