Since its inception, Global Kids' mission has remained steadfast; to educate, activate and inspire youth from underserved communities to take action on critical issues facing our world. Global Kids develops youth leaders through dynamic global education and leadership development programs.
We offer a variety of school day and afterschool programs at school sites and at our headquarters, as well as enriching summer learning programs. We work primarily with middle school and high school youth in underserved communities. Global Kids works in 26 schools in NYC and Washington, DC. Global Kids Leaders embody Global Kids' mission. In 2018-2019, GK enrolled over 3,000 students in its weekly after school and expanded learning time programs and over 1,000 students in our in-school leadership development and service learning programs. For the 2018-2019 school year, 97% of GK seniors graduated from high school and 94% of those students matriculated to college.
