Multinational Chapter Toolkit

This toolkit is a collection of tools to help you globalize your chapter and grow your mission with international students. Whether you’re on the ground yourself or mobilizing and equipping others (or both!), each item can be used individually or in combination (like Lego pieces for you to create your own tools for vision-casting, training, MPD, and more.) Each section starts with the smallest or most basic resource.
