Celebrating 20 Years of World Savvy

This year, World Savvy celebrates 20 years of reimagining education for a more globally connected world – creating a generation of changemakers who know more, care more, and do more for their communities and the world – right now. Since 2002, World Savvy has grown from providing programming to one high school in Oakland, CA in 2002 to serving more than 808,700 students and 6,800 educators! And your support of World Savvy has made all the difference.

As we celebrate this incredible milestone, we also remain more committed than ever to our vision – by 2035, World Savvy will engage a network of 10,000 K-12 schools in diverse geographies across the US, reaching an estimated 5 million students. We will leverage the learning and impact of our network toward broader policy change toward recognition of global competence as critical to a quality education across the country.

It feels radical, but We Must Imagine:

A school where every student knows they belong. A classroom where every student knows that their identity is valuable — a core component of their learning that connects them to their peers and to the wider world. An education system that empowers educators and prepares students for success in our modern economy. A world where the walls between learning, school, and identity are torn down. A community where young adults remain engaged after graduation, and are energized toward building a vibrant multi-ethnic democracy. Pride in self and pride in community aren’t at odds with this vision. They work together, alongside a deep pride in being a global citizen — knowing more, caring more, and doing more to contribute to a more peaceful, sustainable, and just world.

Will you join us in celebrating 20 years of impact at World Savvy – and help us make this vision a reality? Because it is the reality all students deserve.
