Could you inspire people or do you know someone who could?
In September 2010, Global Poverty Project was launched in the United States. We are now planning to take 1.4 Billion Reasons across the United States and reach more than 50,000 people in 2011. We are currently looking to recruit and train presenters to reach a variety of communities all across our nation including schools, faith groups, workplaces, and universities. We invite you or members of your organization to apply to become a presenter with the Global Povery Project.
Both the presenter and the presentation are the heart and soul of The Global Poverty Project. They allow us to engage and inspire people, and build the global movement that will end extreme poverty within a generation. We are inviting all Americans that are passionate about ending extreme poverty to apply to join our Presenter team. Meet our lead presenters, see places where they present, or sponsor a presenter.

I began volunteering with The Global Poverty Project back in September 2010 and immediately knew that I wanted to be involved. When I first saw the 1.4 Billion Reasons presentation at my university, I was impressed with how personable the content was for the audience. It was the perfect combination of humor and facts without being dry and tasteless. I was drawn in, educated and inspired. As a presenter you will have the opportunity to do just the same—and it feels GREAT. Aside from captivating an audience you have the opportunity to “own” the presentation and tell you own “story” of your experiences with extreme poverty. You’ll have the opportunity to convey your passion and encourage your peers to take action. It’s a fantastic experience that I’m sure anyone will enjoy as they become inspired and empowered to play a role in ending extreme poverty.
