Volunteer for Maggie L. Walker Global Speaker’s Bureau

Can you give an hour to speak to a language, global studies, science, or government class about your experiences? In that short time, you can make a ‘world’ of difference.  We are assembling a database of parent and community presenters who are willing to share their expertise in:

  • Language fluency and colloquial conversation
  • Living and working in a foreign country
  • Traveling abroad for business or recreation
  • Working collaboratively on business or social projects across the globe
  • Conducting international business in person or via communications technology

If you, your business, or a friend can help broaden our students’ horizons, please contact us at and become a global resource today!
