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

The College and Career Readiness Program will complement Global Kids' civic education and youth leadership programs to ensure that students are informed about the range of college and career opportunities available to them. Participants will attend college trips, visit a variety of workplaces to speak with career professionals, and receive one-on-one assistance with the college and financial aid application 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.
