Global Kids develops youth leaders for the global stage through dynamic global education and leadership development programs. Global Kids inspires underserved youth to achieve academic excellence and global competency, and empowers them to take action on critical issues facing their communities and our world.
Our vision is to create an ever-growing network of young people from diverse backgrounds who attain leadership on all levels of society and enter fields of international affairs and public policy.
Global Kids integrates global issues, civic engagement, and digital media in its in-school and after school programs for students in underserved communities in New York City and Washington, DC.
The organization ensures that students are motivated to succeed in high school, attend college, plan their future careers, and make a positive difference in their schools, communities, and the world.
