Global Citizens Academy: Creating Cross Cultural Experiences for Disadvantaged Youth

Session Description

As the world becomes more complex and our economies become increasingly global, what happens to the children who don’t have access to cross cultural experiences? For youth who do not have the resources to travel, technology and storytelling can help bridge the experience gap while fostering social emotional learning. Learn how to use Google Maps, YouTube, and role-playing games to foster social connection, build empathy, and encourage global thinking.
