Why do we serve?

Approximately 6.3 million United States citizens live, work and study overseas. As expatriate Americans we can bring a unique vitality to Dr. King’s vision, across the globe, through service in our international overseas communities and alongside our foreign neighbors.

Our service revitalizes our ties with the United States and strengthens our role as goodwill ambassadors for the country. And it deepens our understanding of others and ourselves, as we build bridges with people around the world.
