Educating the Next Generations of Changemakers
Since 2002, World Savvy has reached nearly 730,000 youth and 6,000 educators in 29 states and 12 countries. The most profound impact of World Savvy’s programs is evidenced by educator and student engagement – our programs make teaching and learning real, experiential, and relevant for a changing world. As a result, students acquire the kind of knowledge, skills, and dispositions that not only prepare them for college, career, and life in a global society, but help them identify as global citizens who are motivated to contribute as engaged citizens for our world.
Our work empowers educators to make school inclusive, relevant, and engaging for all students, inspiring them to learn, work, and thrive as responsible global citizens.
World Savvy students graduate:
- Equipped to collaborate and cooperate as active citizens in more diverse, local communities.
- Prepared as problem solvers, poised to address future local and global challenges that are increasingly interconnected and interdependent.
- With the knowledge and skills necessary for future jobs in a global economy.
“World Savvy opened my eyes to the problems occurring in our world. It also made me see people differently. No matter how different I could be from someone else, we are still humans and suffer from the same problems.” – World Savvy Student
