Rebel Global Connections combats the cultural isolation seen on college campuses by charging university students from a variety of backgrounds with the task of organizing and implementing intercultural activities. Previously unconnected groups of students will work together as a group, and they will benefit from the task through language exchanges, networking, and service.

As a primary service goal, RGC aims to alleviate the problem of cultural isolation for Mississippi schoolchildren by introducing them to a variety of cultures and languages from around the world through age-appropriate programming. National and international college students and Mississippi's elementary schoolchildren will gain an awareness of each other and the many opportunities the world has to offer through Rebel Global Connections.

RGC also performs advocacy through its new subcommittee, Rebels for Global Opportunity. Partnered with a well-established international nonprofit called RESULTS (results.org), RGO encourages Congressional policy that supports education for all, medical access and economic opportunity. RGO activists undertake citizen lobbying efforts, community engagement projects and media outreach. Members may exclusively take part in advocacy or educational projects as they wish.

Any member of the UM community can join Rebel Global Connections! Feel free to contact any RGC leader with questions.
