The mission of the International Trends and Services facet is to expand the global platform for programs designed and developed to service the educational, health and cultural needs of people of African descent throughout the world. All programmatic components of the facet are delivered through measurable and sustainable service delivery methods that reach women and their families.

The foremost goal of the International Trends and Services facet is to provide opportunities for tangible service in other countries. Our “boots on the ground” approach provides for more personalized methods for assisting and improving the lives of women, children and men worldwide through long-term programs committed to empowerment and public policy leadership in advocating for social justice.

The International Trends and Services National Signature programs are designed and developed to service educational, health and cultural needs and to help people emerge from poverty. The Education Across the Miles signature program global outreach has built, refurbished, and furnished educational materials to more than 60 schools in the African diaspora and the Caribbean, successfully making a direct and significant impact on the lives of thousands of students and families.

The LinksHelp for Humanity programmatic outreach efforts focus on providing access to clean water, personal hygiene supplies, food, and medical attention and supplies.

The Links International Foreign Affairs and Business Empowerment for Youth (LIFE) program exposes minority high school students to career possibilities in foreign affairs and international business in an effort to close the race and gender divide in corporate and governmental jobs, and foreign service appointments.
