Raising Global Citizens
A Series for Parents, Caregivers, and Educators
Global competence, critical to ensuring our youth are capable citizens in both their local and the global community, is multi-faceted and includes cognitive development, socioemotional skills, and civic learning. It has four overlapping dimensions that students will need to interact successfully with people face-to-face as well as virtually in their communities and in other nations and regions of the world (investigate the world, recognize perspectives, communicate ideas, and take action). Skills in these dimensions are also needed to examine and work toward the resolution of issues with local and global significance.
Over the next few weeks we will address this critical issue through programming that explores how to best support children to be effective participants in this increasingly complex, diverse, and interconnected world. Join us to learn more about what you can do today to help your children develop into the global citizens of tomorrow.
