Global Glimpse believes that first-hand exposure to different countries, cultures and people is one of the most powerful educational experiences one can have. We believe this exposure is essential for ensuring young Americans of all backgrounds will think and act as responsible global citizens.

As one of the only organizations making experiential global education accessible to all, our innovative model uniquely positions us to be able to deliver economically and ethnically diverse experiences. Most Global Glimpse students are from low-income families in underserved communities, and so receive significant scholarships to participate in our programs.

Through after-school workshops and 3-week immersion programs in the developing world, we expose our students to meaningful experiences that unlock their potential to influence change on a local and global scale.
