Global Glimpse is looking for highly motivated and passionate career professionals to join our Rising Leaders Council (RLC) in Chicago!

Global Glimpse is an innovative education non-profit that works to inspire US high school students to become responsible global citizens through after-school programming and an immersion experience in a developing country. We are committed to making transformational travel accessible to youth from all socioeconomic backgrounds.

The RLC is a diverse network of cross-sector professionals who work to build awareness around Global Glimpse programs while also supporting program expansion, fundraising, and network development for the organization, both regionally and nationally. The RLC meets monthly on the third Tuesday of every month in downtown Chicago. 

RLC members receive the opportunity to grow personally and professionally through hands-on nonprofit board experience and have access to a national network of members who share a passion for global education and youth development. RLC members commit to supporting Global Glimpse in the following ways:

  • Expand the Global Glimpse network by supporting with program expansion, fundraising, and network development;
  • Assist with fundraising initiatives, special projects, and events; and
  • Commit to a minimum $1,000 give + get annually.

Global Glimpse commits to providing RLC members:

  • Opportunities for local emerging leaders to develop nonprofit board experience and learn the inner workings of a fast-growing and successful international education organization with a unique business model.
  • Access to a national cross-sector network of individuals who share a passion for global education and youth development in the SF Bay Area, Chicago, and New York.
  • Exclusive invitation to regional programmatic events to engage with students.
