Global Kids provides a wide range of in-school, after-school and out of school programs that develop students' leadership skills and civic engagement. We utilize a unique interest-driven learning model in which we tap into what students are curious about and like to do naturally to engage them in learning about current events, foreign policy, and human rights issues and equip them with the skills and tools they need to make an impact. Since we meet them where they are, our programs run the gamut in terms of themes, including the performing arts, video games, social activism, and film making.
