Good News Corps is an IYF volunteering initiative that helps develop next generation’s leaders by instilling a broadened view of the world and the spirit for self-sacrifice. GNC creates opportunities for college-aged men and women to travel overseas and directly engage in all aspects of foreign culture: language, cuisine, music, architecture, sports, and traditional performances. Through 10 months of service with these various interactions, GNCorps volunteers develop a global perspective and gain a genuine heart to serve others.
