Our Mission

We are a 26-year-old nonprofit organization that works to advance global education in schools. We believe in the power of understanding the world from diverse perspectives and a future in which all individuals are informed and contributing global citizens.

Why?

Students in the 21st century need the skills, knowledge, and openness to engage with their global peers and to help solve today's pressing global challenges.

Teachers are the key.

Our visionary founders understood that educators are vital to shaping the way children see the world — that to make world histories and cultures accessible and exciting to students, they needed to inspire and empower educators. We continue this important work every day by providing high-quality, dynamic learning opportunities for K-12 teachers that give them the space to learn and collaborate with their peers and subject experts.

How do we do it?

We collaborate with teachers, schools, and educational organizations to offer professional development courses and resources that help make global education an integral part of every student's classroom experience. Our engaging face-to-face and online programs, curriculum resources, and international study tours enhance global understanding and help thousands of teachers every year bring the wider world to their students.
