Explore an innovative model for global education and leadership development that provides access for students from all backgrounds. Global Glimpse's two-year, school-based program provides high school students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds with a global perspective and the skills, perspective, confidence, and motivation needed for college and career success. Through the Global Glimpse program students develop global competence, civic engagement, youth leadership, and college readiness, inspiring and empowering youth to become agents of change in their local communities and in the greater global community. Participants will learn about the benefits to all involved in the Global Glimpse program in Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador through first hand accounts from educators and students.
