When Abby Falik graduated from high school she wanted to travel to another country to do volunteer service work, but she was too young for the Peace Corps. Falik has since founded the Bay Area-based nonprofit Global Citizen Year, which helps high school graduates take a "gap year" before starting college to do global service and learn about the world.

Host: Dave Iverson


  • Abby Falik, founder and CEO of Global Citizen Year
  • Mariela Garcia, fellow with Global Citizen Year in Brazil in 2010-2011
