Vision - beGlobal establishes a future where all rural teens become effective leaders whom perpetuate excellence within their communities
beGlobal is a non-profit organization designed to give high school students in rural America the opportunity to participate in international summer service abroad projects. beGlobal's mission is to challenge the thinking and motivations of today’s youth by exposing them to different cultures and customs. The desired outcome is that students will strive to create legacies that positively impact the world for generations to come by thinking without limitations.
In 2008, beGlobal awarded its first scholarship to Bryce Lancaster of Pinetops, NC, a sophomore at Southwest Edgecombe High School. In the summer of 2009, Bryce will visit Costa Rica. He will spend his time immersed in the native culture near the town of La Fortuna while exploring the Arenal Volcanoes and Rainforest. Look out for the video testimonial as Bryce documents his experience.
