Map for Change is a community-created resource that highlights volunteer opportunities at U.S. diplomatic posts overseas, plus the DC area.


There are so many great online resources and support groups for the Foreign Service community, but many people still aren’t aware of them. …The Hub indexes all of these resources in one easy-to-use site. Please use it and share it with others!
