Inspiring Youth to Become Active Global Citizens



Global Concerns Classroom (GCC) is an innovative and dynamic US-based global education program of Concern Worldwide, an international humanitarian organization working in 25 of the least developed countries in emergency response and development work. Since 2001, GCC has provided free classroom resources and hands-on programming to US secondary schools to empower youth to explore, speak out, and take action on global poverty issues.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In an increasingly interconnected world, American youth need the training, knowledge, and skills to prepare them for the 21st century workplace where diversity, competition, collaboration, and global engagement is the norm. Addressing global competency in K-12 education is imperative in order to prepare the next generation to be successful in the United States and the world.

How will this project solve this problem?

GCC equips US secondary schools with resources and services to prepare students to be globally competent for the 21st century. We equip teachers by providing materials and training through standard-based classroom curriculum and extracurricular resources to build global citizenship. We engage youth on a wide range of global issues through hands-on and online programming through speaker presentations, student workshops, and after school clubs.

Potential Long Term Impact

GCC works directly with over 30 schools each year in the New York City and Chicago areas, impacting more than 3,000 students and 600 educators. Indirectly, GCC reaches over 500 educators and 45,000 students across the United States each year through the use of GCC resources. As a result, secondary level teachers are better equipped to teach global citizenship skills at both curricular and extracurricular levels and secondary level students demonstrate greater global competency and engagement.
