Are you interested in going abroad?

Are you interested in volunteering, studying, working or living overseas?  Or learning more about the possibilities? This is your chance to connect with organizations that can help you make it happen! Check out opportunities in more than 100 countries at the Go Global Expo.

The Go Global Expo happens twice per year, in February and September.  It is a unique chance to connect in person with a wide range of organizations that can help you get overseas, and make the most of your time abroad.

Find out how you can:

• Choose the best overseas opportunity for you
Cut through the online clutter and talk to the very people who run these programs, and alumni who can share their experiences.

• Get answers to questions that matter
Will my overseas degree be recognized when I return home? How do I know if a volunteer organization is genuine? Can I work legally while I am studying abroad? What is the best country to teach English in? How can I make the most of a gap year?

• Fund your journey
Scholarships, jobs, work abroad, visas or fundraising - get real information and concrete tips that will help you realize your dreams.

• Build your resume
Go prepared, make the most of your time abroad and use your experience to get ahead. Hear from experts who have followed their passions and turned their overseas experiences into satisfying careers - and how you can too.

The Go Global Expo is brought to you by the magazine resource for meaningful travel, Verge Magazine. Since 2002, Verge has provided readers with the information they need to help them work, volunteer, or study abroad.
