This paper examines whether returned international volunteers with a strong belief in the need for global governance also believe that participation in national political and civic spaces can drive global change. Findings indicate no significant difference in volunteers' conceptions of global citizenship before and after international service. However, those who hold cosmopolitan views about the need for global governance have a higher sense of efficacy that participation in national spaces may affect global change. Findings suggest that global citizens may maintain an active civic identity rooted in overlapping locations. In addition, heightened notions of global citizenship appear to have a significant effect on returned volunteers' interest in international affairs and active engagement across national borders
