World Savvy is a national education nonprofit that works with educators, schools, and districts to integrate the highest quality of global competence teaching and learning into K-12 classrooms, so all young people can be prepared to engage, succeed, and meet the challenges of 21st century citizenship.
We do this by providing a range of high-quality, specifically targeted programs and services, including:
World Savvy Classrooms: this program integrates the highest level of global competence learning into classrooms by combining professional development and consulting for educators with project-based learning for K-12 students. The Classrooms program is aligned with and supports Common Core state standards, ensuring students learn the required ‘core’ content mandated by state and national standards, in a way that establishes real-world connections to the material.
World Savvy Partnerships: World Savvy partners with schools and districts to support the systemic integration of global competence education. The World Savvy Global Competence Matrix provides the foundation for our work in schools and districts. Partners with World Savvy have the ability to choose from a range of programs and services and customize partnership packages to best fit their needs.
Global Competence Certificate: The Global Competence Certificate (GCC) is the first-of-its-kind, graduate-level certificate program in global competence education for teachers. Developed by leading experts in global education – Teachers College, Columbia University; World Savvy, and Asia Society – the GCC program is designed specifically for in-service educators who are interested in embedding global learning into their teaching practice and preparing their students for the global reality beyond the classroom.
