Designed By Youth
Global Nomads Group uses technology to connect youth with their global peers to explore and respond to the issues they care most about – from individual identity to global hunger to human rights. Whether participating in live conversations or exchanging stories in our online courses, young people are able to listen intently, share viewpoints, and explore both the similarities and differences in their lives. These eye-widening, mind-opening, and perspective-shifting exchanges are at the core of our programming and allow youth to powerfully experience our shared humanity.
Youth-facilitated live discussions among global teens and access to a vibrant online community that explores and celebrates our differences and connections.
Short Online Courses
Asynchronous experiences where youth dig into issues they are passionate about, share their stories, and explore the stories of their global peers at their own pace. Video courses include captioning (in English and Arabic), ASL interpretation, and image descriptions.
Facilitated Live Events
Live online discussion groups led by trained facilitators where youth engage with their global peers about a pressing global issue and about each other’s lives.
What Youth Are Saying
“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.”
Joe, Youth from Armenia
“I joined three themes because the videos really teach me how to be more aware of each topic and broaden my horizon. It is also nice that it includes a photo description for every image to help people that might be visually impaired and achieve equality… The module about ‘overcoming biases’ changed how I perceive different things… I am also more connected to global peers through listening [to] their stories and learn[ing] about their customs. Thank you for filming the meaningful videos for us.”
Maria, Youth from Mexico
“One word would definitely be inspiring. Listening to women’s perspectives around the world was incredible, as well as getting a chance to listen to other people’s stories. I’m so grateful that I was able to join this amazing event!”
Noor, Youth from Jordan
“I found that the lesson inspired me, I feel like I was able to connect with other girls feeling the same way as me. And it made me feel lighter. So I think that the lesson was very well done, and motivational to do good in the world and help other people around the world.”
Laura, Youth from United States
