Background Information

THINK G.L.O.B.A.L. INC is based on the vision of Pauline Harmon. THINK G.L.O.B.A.L. INC is a nonprofit organization that seeks, through community and individual contributions, to offer monetary scholarships to deserving students to enable them to further their horizons by traveling abroad and provide them with an educational and learning experience that further their understanding of the history and cultural context of societies that they have studied. Mrs. Pauline Harmon, founder of this organization, is an educator who has traveled extensively at home and abroad, and has seen, via trips which she has organized and executed for students, the effect that such trips have had on students’ academic and personal lives. It is her aim, through this organization, to enable as many students as possible to benefit from such experiences.

Summary of Internship

As a non- profit organization, the majority of our support comes from community involvement, fundraising and donations. Being the first official intern I was giving the tasks of finding potential donors, creating PR packages and putting our varies tours onto film. The community has been such a great help in our success. I weekly look for organizations and company to support our cause, contacting them and spreading the word. The PR packages are used to draw the attention of companies and backers. It is filled with testimonies of students of past trips, a short film of the tours important and THINKGLOBAL, INC background information. The big project I am involved in is a documentary. The idea of travel and student development goes hand in hand to me. The documentary faces the question of is travel for business or pleasure, how does travel affect students long term, and does it really have to be for the rich and well off?
