I got the opportunity to meet awesome people from around the world that are making change for the better. I would never have gotten to meet them if it wasn't for this program. Along with that, the academy taught me skills that no class in school has taught me and more!

My son has come away inspired each day from the amazing speakers and their journeys. He is transforming in positive ways every day that we could have never envisioned.

While I, like many individual teachers struggled with remote learning, Global Glimpse collaboratively built a unique, well-conceived, program that was able to engage, give valuable life skills, and instill a sense of personal agency in students from across the country.

“I spoke with other students from different parts of the country that I never would’ve gotten to know otherwise. Living in NYC, it’s easy to believe that this is the only way of living. But meeting people from places like California and Texas, and learning how they live, where they grew up, how their surroundings affected them, made me realize that there isn’t just one way of living!”
