In order to tackle the challenges of the 21st century, we must prepare the next generation for their global reality. The world’s hardworking teachers and professors often lack adequate time, resources and support to prepare our youth for an increasingly globalized society while still meeting important curricula standards. GK-12C uses the power of online community to facilitate global education, social entrepreneurship, and civic engagement for millions of youth worldwide.
The GK-12C program is a unique global leadership and professional development opportunity for university students transforming them into 21st century leaders through innovative trainings that build responsible, global citizenship and empower students with critical life-skills needed for careers in today’s increasingly globalized world.
GK-12C Hubs engage university students in service-learning by empowering them as facilitators of a global education curriculum in local middle/high school classrooms that are linked with partner classrooms in another country.
GK-12C approaches the program execution from two sides:
(1) GK-12C partners with organizations, company, universities and colleges to:
Establish an innovative service-learning program that empowers university students as STEAM (Science+ Technology+ Engineering+ Arts+ Mathematics) Innovation facilitators in local, public middle and high school classrooms, and linking campuses across the world to a network of engaged universities, allowing for student facilitators to work together across borders as advocates for their classrooms.
(2) GK-12C provides middle, high school, colleges of education, and universities with:
A global education curricula program that builds critical thinking, problem-solving, and awareness of shared global and local challenges in STEAM field. GK-12C engage a team of trained university student facilitators to lead global learning and STEAM competency curriculum once a week and a cross exchange opportunity with partner classrooms abroad.
