At Students Going Global, we recognize the value in outward bound educational opportunities, so we utilize Educational Tours Abroad, Global Education Centered
Youth Development Programs and Community Outreach Projects to support and empower disadvantaged youth. Currently serving Detroit

 

We offer six global education-centered & student-centered, year-round Youth Development Programs that teach global literacy and 21st century skills (global competence, collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving). Each program provides an opportunity for students to travel abroad, and each program provides scholarships for low-income students that cover the full cost of the year-round program as well as the Educational Tour Abroad.

 

All six programs will run simultaneously and meet with students once a week for two hours. In each program, students will participate in local, national and international outward bound educational opportunities. Each program encompasses the overall
goals of Students Going Global and develops the whole child, academically, socially and personally.

 

Upon program completion, all students will receive signed certificates of completion, recognizing them as Global Citizens for traveling abroad with Students Going Global and fulfilling the program requirements. Our ultimate goal at Students Going Global is to empower disadvantaged youth nationwide to become globally minded, community conscious and solution oriented leaders, thinkers and doers who become major contributors to their communities and to a global society.
