Challenge

Global Kids youth are ethnically and socioeconomically diverse, attending low-performing, high-needs public schools in New York City and Washington, DC. Many of their schools do not adequately prepare them to participate in the democratic process, understand global events, or achieve academic and professional success after high school.

Solution

Global Kids works to develop youth leaders for the global stage through dynamic global education and leadership development programs. Global Kids inspires underserved youth to achieve academic excellence, self-actualization 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.
Global Kids' College and Career Readiness Program will prepare 150 high school seniors from underserved communities for success in higher education and effective participation in today's global workforce. Students participate in one-on-one counseling, trips to universities, and workshops on the college application and financial aid process.

Long-Term Impact

Long-term, GK participants graduate from high school, enroll in college, and become leaders in their communities and the world at large. Last year, 99% of GK seniors graduated from high school, more than 30 points higher than NYC's average. 87% of those graduates are now in college. In an alumni survey, 97% agreed that GK helped to increase their leadership skills, and 95% agreed that they increased their civic and community engagement due to GK.
