NGC Programs (Classroom & Afterschool)

New Global Citizens offers educational programs for students and teachers to assist youth to become new global citizens. Through afterschool, classroom, and community engagement, NGC programs prepare youth with knowledge, skills, and experience to make a positive impact at a local and global level.

AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM:
NGC’s Afterschool Program is designed to help students create a team of passionate individuals to raise global awareness on their campuses and in their communities, while simultaneously helping a grassroots organization tackle such issues. We connect students with grassroots organizations, which we call NGC Global Projects, and provide support and resources to help students become a part of innovative solutions to global issues. Resources range from online materials to an assigned Team Mentor (scroll down for more on Team Mentor!). We honor all student efforts by ensuring 100% of funds raised by student teams are sent directly to the chosen NGC Global Project. Whether it’s training rats to detect landmines or providing education for 6 months to an Afghan woman, these funds are used specifically to solve issues. All it takes is passion and dedication: NGC provides the resources, and student teams create the impact!

CLASSROOM PROGRAM
New Global Citizens’ supplemental curriculum is designed for teachers who are seeking an innovative and engaging curriculum that integrates global competency, collaboration, critical thinking, project-based learning, advocacy, and leadership in the classroom. The Classroom Program offers units, lesson plans, hands-on student activities, and resources for teachers to inculcate their content area with global issues. Aligned with academic standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and 21st Century Skills, the program empowers students to be global citizens and change makers in their own communities. In addition, teachers will have access to NGC staff support and a community of NGC educators across the nation.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to create a generation of new global citizens, individuals who use their knowledge and skills to impact the global community. Our intention is to serve both students and youth across the country by providing both groups the resources, partnerships, and support to take action in their local and global communities.

We provide teachers and students all the support they need to develop a global competency, identify their role in finding a solutions to pressing issues, and take action by raising funds, advocating, and educating their communities.

For teachers, we provide project-based learning, standards-aligned curriculum, mini lessons, multimedia resource libraries, activities and more to help them integrate global issues into their classrooms. Additionally, we offer professional development and staff support to meet NGC educators' needs. We recognize that every classroom is different. For students, we provide action guides and team mentor support (program alumni who offer advice, feedback, and a connection to the NGC staff). Furthermore, all participants have a direct connection to our grassroots partners around the world, NGC Global Projects.

We rely on a supportive board, feedback from our current participants, and staff experience to accomplish our goals. Our board members' experience and background spans nonprofit consulting to technology to global education. They provide valuable direction and strategy as we continue to expand our impact. The NGC team also believes that our educators and teachers know best what will help them become new global citizens. We ask for advice and make adjustments to our program on an annual basis. Additionally, three of the four NGC staff members are former teachers; therefore, we understand what current teachers face when integrating new content into their lessons. We also have an generous NGC community that donates their time, talent, and advice to help us further our mission.

What we have accomplished:
+ We have successfully uploaded and launched 40+ 5-15 day units for our teachers to access (Dual Language, World Language, Science, Math, English, and History).
+ We have hosted professional development events with the Arizona K12 Center with STEM and Humanities.
+ Our students' take action successes continue every year. One team raised $3014.66 for our partner, Global Women's Water Initiative.
+ In school year 2014-2015, we had NGC students and teachers active in 12 states.

What we are working to accomplish:
+ Create mini lessons that provide teachers with a short activity that can easily be integrated into a structured curriculum.
+ Launch our global education platform - NGC Staff is currently securing funding and developing the design and content.
+ Expand our offerings to meet the unique needs of current and future teachers!
