We offer six year-round, global education centered Youth Development Programs that provide global literacy, 21st century skills (global competence, collaboration, critical thinking & problem solving), local, national and international outward bound educational opportunities, entrepreneurial skills, community service and self-esteem building. Each program takes students on an Educational Tour Abroad and provides scholarships for low-income students that cover the full cost to participate.
All six programs will run simultaneously and meet with students once a week for two hours year-round. 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.
