Students Going Global: Creating Global Citizens for a Global Economy
“The single greatest gift you can give your children today is to raise them with a global mindset.”
Perry Yeatman, co-author of Get Ahead by Going Abroad
Students Going Global is a global education program, utilizing Educational Tours Abroad, global education focused Youth Development Programs and Community Outreach Projects to support and empower inner-city disadvantaged youth in Detroit. We recognize the value of exposure, experience and opportunity to realizing one’s full potential, so we issue full scholarships to academically motivated, low-income students in Detroit, giving them the ability to participate in our year-round after-school youth development programs.
Our curriculum provides a broad range of knowledge and experiences that prepare students for 21st century careers and that correlate with the global economy in which students live and must compete. Investing in the global education of our youth is paramount in the 21st century. With community collaboration, we can fully realize our goal to become a staple in Detroit and build a pipeline for youth engagements in global education and awareness through high school graduation and beyond.
