Annual Benefit

Global Kids’ 2022 Annual Benefit took place on Tuesday, November 1st, 2022 at the Council on Foreign Relations in Manhattan. Friends and supporters of GK gathered to celebrate our mission and the accomplishments of our youth while raising vital funds for our youth programs.

During the event, two very special GK alums were awarded the first ever Carole Artigiani Scholarships. We are delighted to recognize our founder Carole Artigiani by naming the scholarship in honor of her decades-long commitment to educating, activating, and inspiring our students to take action on critical issues facing their own communities and those around the world. The newly established fund will help to solidify the important role that Global Kids plays in preparing our students for college and helping provide support to students in that crucial initial year of college.

GK5K Annual Run / Walk

The GK5K is a fun, family-friendly annual event that brings together GK staff, students, and supporters. Proceeds support our College and Career Readiness Program. This program provides one-on-one guidance to students as they prepare for life after high school. Students explore their options; take college tours that include overnight trips; get help with college, scholarship and financial aid applications; attend career days; participate in internships, and receive job readiness training. 

Join us later this year on Saturday, October 12th, 2024 at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens!

Studies show that students who were able to engage in meaningful travel earn 12% more in their later careers and are more engaged and successful in school – and your support will allow youth in underserved communities that opportunity.
