Nancy McDonald // Senior Youth Specialist // Global Communities
Nancy McDonald joins us from Global Communities where she works to implement creative programs with youth around the world through community-based solutions. A Senior Technical Specialist, her focus is to give youth a voice in their communities and help create educated, driven, and skilled leaders for the next generation. Like many working in international development, Global Communities recognizes what may work stunningly well in one country could be an offensive, cultural failure in another — so they partner with community leaders on the ground who have roots where they work.
Nancy McDonald is the Senior Technical Specialist for Youth at Global Communities, where she provides technical support to Global Communities youth programming. Nancy started her career in international development managing and designing girls’ scholarship programs and has worked and lived in the West Bank and Gaza, Macedonia and Jordan leading vocational education and scholarship programs.
Global Communities is an international non-profit organization that works closely with communities worldwide to bring about sustainable changes that improve the lives and livelihoods of the vulnerable.
