Masterclasses offer you a world of global humanitarian experiences in short, informal sessions


Masterclasses are being presented at the Lifebox Booth in the Connection Center, Lobby D.

Perhaps you’ve considered getting involved in humanitarian work in low-resource settings, but you have lots of questions about what to expect.

A series of masterclasses developed by the ASA’s Committee on Global Humanitarian Outreach and the Lifebox Foundation are being presented throughout the meeting that introduce interested participants to experienced global humanitarian volunteers.

The following classes are still available and will be held at the Lifebox Booth in the Connection Center, Lobby D.
