In 2019, over $42,000 was raised for GK’s College and Career Readiness Programs! Thanks to all our sponsors, in-kind donors, participants, and volunteers for making this possible.  The GK5K is a fun, family-friendly and the proceeds support a great cause– Global Kids’ 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.  

YPC Passports Party

Global Kids’ Young Professionals Committee hosts Annual Passports Parties to  benefit Global Kids International Travel Program! All the proceeds from this event will go directly towards providing underserved youth with culturally enriching and socially-conscious international travel opportunities. 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.
We’ll have delicious food, great wine and an incredible auction! Stay tuned for more information on our next event.
