Power of Citizenry
Global Kids’ flagship after school program, the Power of Citizenry, was launched in 1995, and has grown to involve over 800 youth each year, engaging them in international affairs, civic participation and opportunities for social action. Weekly workshops are grounded in our participants’ interests and concerns about their own communities and global issues facing our society. They learn about current events, foreign policy, and human rights issues, and create projects to address issues they care about. Youth shape the content, structure, and goals of the program, and our expert staff give them the confidence, skills, and tools they need to make an impact.
