Our Model

We pair each university-based GlobeMed chapter with a unique organization already improving the health of its community. Year after year, these students and grassroots leaders collaborate on projects that deepen and expand the organization's impact. 

The Result: organizations with a greater capacity to serve their community and a generation of young people equipped to transform the world.


We partner students with grassroots organizations to address health disparities.


We educate and train student advocates for global health equity.


We build a movement of people who believe in health and justice for all.


How it Works


Communicate often

Students and partners talk via Skype, email, or phone to build strong relationships.


Define a project

In the fall of every year, each partnership jointly defines a project that meets a crucial need of the community.


Mobilize & Learn

Students mobilize essential resources for the project's success while learning and training to become advocates for global health.




Partner organizations receive 100% of proceeds raised by GlobeMed chapters. Using these funds, partners implement the project in their own community.

Evaluate & plan ahead

During the summer, students intern on-site with their partner organization and evaluate impact. Together, students and grassroots leaders plan their project for the following year.
