As best expressed by our youth:
"Students leave Global Kids with a sense of social responsibility. We carry that with us. We are global citizens."
"Global Kids makes you bold. You feel like 'no' is not an option. You have hope. It makes you feel that you can change things."
Global Kids places a high value on measuring the effectiveness of our programs. We have established an evaluation system designed to assess the impact of our programming in the areas that youth are learning about and experiencing, specifically leadership development, civic engagement, and global citizenship.
