IDEAS For Us - Our Branches

Together we can educate, engage, and empower everyday people to create extraordinary action in our environment. Learn more about our domestic and international branches to get involved with your local IDEAS For Us branch.

Our IREX Fellows

The IREX Fellows are top tier scholars chosen by the United States Department of State funded program called IREX (International Research & Exchange). They spent a four month term, living in Orlando, Florida and working at IDEAS HQ to learn best practices and have now returned to their home countries as lead organizers of IDEAS.
