You ask…He answers

By iGo Global Staff · July 31, 2018

Your iGo trip is officially in the books. Your suitcase is unpacked (unless you are a Germany JSI and iGosian Airways took over your return flight and lost your luggage in or near Philly. In that case, just trust the process). Part of you misses your time overseas. Part of you wishes you were still there. Part of you can’t believe that the trip went so quickly. Part of you, it seems, stayed overseas. So now what? It’s always a good idea to find your answers in the Word.  When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because…

It’s an iGosian holiday today. The only one, really. We call it the Day of the Mascot.

So we thought it might be fun to create a #MascotDay challenge this time around. See how many points you can earn from the list below. Total up your points and you might be a winner.

iGosian History Month: A Call to Action

By iGo Global Staff · May 8, 2017

You may not know that May is iGosian History Month. Probably because we just decided that in our last staff meeting. You can do that, you know. Just decide to declare a day or a week or a month to remember or honor or celebrate something? So why not iGosia? So join us this month as we celebrate and remember all things iGosia. We plan to fill up the social media landscape with famous iGosians, favorite things about iGosia polls, best cucumber and tomato recipes, and so much more.

NINETYSIX3: An Unlimited Value

By iGo Global Staff · November 1, 2016

The standard streaming subscription for Netflix costs $9.99 per month and there are over 47 million Netflix subscribers in the USofA alone. What a phenomenon. I get it. I mean, there are always Stranger Things you could be spending your money on, right? Netflix is a good investment when you consider all the ways you can use it. You can binge watch it with Friends, or you can get Lost in a show all alone. Streaming Netflix on your smart phone means you can take your favorite shows outdoors. You could watch a comedy on benches in city Parks, And…

This is definitely not for you

By iGo Global Staff · September 13, 2016

No, really. You. This is not your deal, sister. You are not ready for it and you couldn’t do it even if you were. In fact, it is probably safe to say that God didn’t even call you to this in the first place, bro. Seriously, why would He call you? What do you even have to offer? So you’re still reading? Nice. This probably felt a little like the old reverse psychology tricks from your parents. You know the ones: “Don’t you dare smile for this picture!” Or maybe, “You’re right. School is a waste of time. I think…

Leadership

By iGo Global Staff · February 12, 2016

The Best Kept Secret at iGo You won’t find it spelled out in our mission statement. We haven’t turned it into a fancy video. We’ve chosen not to put it on a billboard on I-35. In many ways, it seems like some kind of secret. But leadership development is a huge part of what iGo does. It is woven through the fabric of our training, our mobilization, our systems, our strategies. In some ways, leadership development could be viewed as simply a by-product of our mission. But that view overlooks the intentionality behind it. I call it the best kept…

An iGo M Partner Gives Thanks

By iGo Global Staff · November 23, 2015

We are kicking off a week of thankfulness by thinking about the amazing M partners that we get to serve alongside at iGo. These men and women and their families are simply the best. The. Best. And we couldn’t be more thankful for their partnership and willingness to allow students to share in their work. We could go on and on, and at some point we probably should. But every now and then, our M’s turn those tables on us and share thoughts with us about iGo from their perspective. We received this email of thanks last week and thought…

The Official Holiday of iGosia

By iGo Global Staff · October 29, 2015

Fact: iGosians love a good holiday. Fiction: iGosian Airlines employees treat every day like a holiday. (No really, it’s fiction. It only seems like it is true.) Fact: iGosians also love mascots. Fiction: All iGosia mascots eat cucumbers and tomatoes. (The octopus can’t do it. #textureissues) Put these two facts together and you have yourself a one-of-a-kind celebration. The good people of iGosia would like to invite you to join us as we celebrate our national holiday, The Day of the Mascot. Every year, on November 1, iGosians unite in order to show their support for the country that has…
