Global Kids launched its Washington, D.C. program in 2010 in collaboration with the District of Columbia Public School system to bring GK’s proven approach to teachers and students at Bell Multicultural High School and Friendship Collegiate Academy. For the 2012-2013 school year, GK-DC added programs at Maya Angelou PCS - Evans High School and Cesar Chavez School for Public Policy - Capitol Hill Campus.
At each of our schools, classroom teachers serve as GK Fellows. These educators are fully trained in GK’s methodology and curriculum, and are supported by the GK-DC staff. GK Fellows and GK Trainers facilitate Global Kids Clubs, which involve youth in interactive global affairs workshops and service projects in and around their communities.
