Congratulations to the GK students who worked on this project in Japan for winning the “Best Pitch” Award at 2017 Emoti-con!


GK Leaders who worked on the Onagawa Neighborhood Quest accepting their “Best Pitch” award at the 2017 Emoti-con! event.

In the summer of 2016, 10 Global Kids high school students traveled to Japan for a cultural exchange and service-learning trip.

The Global Kids students along with their Japanese peers from Katariba, created a geo-locative game utilizing MIT’s Taleblazer software to complement the extensive prevention, education, and relief work following the 2011 tsunami and earthquake in Japan. ¬†They adapted GK’s NYC Haunts to serve as a helpful tool for residents of the tsunami-effected region.
