Discovering Global Solidarity in the Local Community

Quinn McKenna is a Notre Dame junior who participated in the center’s Global Learning and Living Community (GLLC) during the summer of 2021. Following the cancellation of summer travel in 2021, the International Summer Service Learning Program (ISSLP) offered GLLC for students who needed to complete their global service-learning virtually. This program allowed ISSLP participants an opportunity to live in an intentional community in South Bend/Notre Dame, conduct virtual global service-learning projects, and engage in learning about global issues localized in South Bend and the region.

In this episode Quinn shares her GLLC experience, which she found to be one of the most surprising and rewarding experiences she’s had at Notre Dame
