Online Courses, Community, Events, and Experiences
25 Years of Inspiring Youth Action
Since 1998, Global Nomads Group has offered young people safe digital spaces through which to express themselves, share their stories, and connect with peers through youth-created online courses, content creation internships, discussion platforms, and events for young people worldwide.
Youth-led Learning and Conversations
Global Nomads Group’s unique programs give youth a voice in how they learn about themselves, their peers, and the world around them.
Youth design their curriculum, lead conversations, and share their own stories.
Together, we are equipping them to lead us into a more just, equitable, and empathetic world.
Student to World
Our unique online courses use youth storytelling to bring social issues to life through day-to-day realities.
Each course – designed in our Content Creation Lab youth internship program – provides an age-appropriate introduction to pressing global issues. Youth participants share their own stories in the courses and participate in moderated live conversations, offering real, lived experiences and a broad range of perspectives.
Film & Media
Medicine & Scientific Research
These courses are ideal for in-person and virtual classrooms, adult-facilitated youth groups, and individual learners ages 13-19.
Content Creation Lab
The Content Creation Lab (CCL) is a unique, semester-long internship for youth participants, ages 11-25, from around the world. CCL interns meet virtually in global teams to create our Student to World courses and other curriculum content.
Chief of Programs and Learning Sandra Stein, Ph.D., describes the Content Creation Lab process.
Join the Conversation
Student to World is about more than just courses: It’s a global community of educators and youths who are curious, adventurous, and making a positive impact on the world.
Meet colleagues around the world to share classroom ideas, curriculum advice, and lesson plans.
Participate in live events, learn about our internships, meet other future leaders, and inspire change.
Global Nomads Group believes that all young people have stories to tell and that these personal stories enrich learning with context and perspective. In our online courses, youth learners read stories from youth participants around the world and share their own.
Maryam, Youth from Iraq
“When I was a young, my father was very obsessed with listening to music, even he used to play a musical instrument calling the oud, and I used to sit with him to listen to wonderful tune. I inherited the passion for music from my father. Music was taking me on a journey through time to different places that I only visit in my mind. It makes me happier, like a dose of both mental and physical comfortable. Is the only language in the world that is understood through hearing without indoctrination or educationI it calms and soothes the soul and helps to relax. Music in general is a collective art that is not isolated from other aspects of the life of human groups. Hearing music expresses emotions and feelings that language cannot express. And it has an impact on the formation of a balanced, harmonious and personality and the development of creativity and innovation.”
What Our Youth Participants Say
“One word I would use to describe the session today is ‘eye-opening’. I never really thought about the different biases I had when meeting people for the first time, and I realized that I should be more open minded when meeting someone.”
