Personal Passion + Global Perspectives

When teens dig into issues that they are passionate about, their engagement is deep and their drive to learn is intense.  Add global perspectives from teens from around the world and they’re able to powerfully engage in our shared humanity. 

Our offerings challenge teens to view pressing global issues through an individual, local and global lens.   By combining engaging global content with story sharing activities, we allow teens around the world to reflect on their own families, cultures, communities, and contexts and make global issues personal, relevant, and actionable.  

Our experiences help teens deepen their empathy, increase their global awareness, hone their communication and critical thinking skills, and identify ways to contribute to their global communities.

Designed by teens for teens ages 13-19, our menu of offerings include something for everyone!

Options range from 1-hour activities to 6 – 8 hours of engagement

Appropriate for individual or group learning

Easy to use, high-impact and fun!
