COLLEGE/CAREER READINESS

All of Global Kids’ programs are designed to prepare young people for success in the sophisticated workplace of the 21st century. In our College and Career Readiness Program, made possible by Capital One, students receive intensive help and ongoing one-on-one support as they prepare for life after high school. In 2015-2016, 98% of Global Kids’ seniors graduated from high school and over 94% enrolled in college, many receiving financial support and scholarships.

Key components of our program include:

  • exploration of college options
  • campus visits including tours, overnight trips, and class auditing
  • assistance with the college and financial aid application process
  • job readiness training including resume preparation, interviewing, and workplace etiquette and professionalism.
  • internships with businesses and non-profit organizations
  • site visits and career panels at leading corporations
