WHAT WE DO:
School the World initiates transformation at the local level, partnering with parents, teachers and local governments to organize communities around education from early childhood through adolescence. With education as the organizing principle of the community, local schools become the engine of sustainable development.
On our journey to creating a more just world, our Student Service Program amplifies our impact at home and abroad by providing U.S students, families and companies the opportunity to create change! Click here to learn more.
Everyone, working together, towards making our world a more just place.
WHERE WE WORK:
Early childhood development programs set the foundation for learning in school. Yet, over 175 million children are not even enrolled in pre-primary education. Our Early Childhood program focuses on school readiness and developmental milestones.
Our primary schools are called community schools because we believe that in order for kids to thrive, communities must be centered around education. We partner with local governments, parents and teachers to make sure that kids earn a quality education with foundational literacy and social & emotional skills.
Our Lower Secondary School Program provides middle-school-aged children with the opportunity to continue learning past the 6th grade. We provide multiple solutions for the various obstacles adolescents face when trying to continue their education into middle school. Each program includes mentor support and empowerment trainings on career paths, technology and life skills.
In the U.S, we provide U.S. citizens the opportunity to make a difference for some of the world's poorest children.
Through both cross-cultural service trips and educational seminars geared towards middle and elementary schools, we provide opportunities to learn about the importance of global service and citizenship.
Our Global Service & Citizenship Program empowers U.S. students, companies and families to make a difference in the lives of children and families living in extreme poverty.
