Vision, Mission, Culture, and Environment

A program that successfully builds global competence in youth has articulated a clear global learning mission, vision, and set of goals. The program infuses these global goals throughout the program’s policies and practices; they are not isolated in any one area. The program has an environment and culture that encourages positive interactions among peers and adults of all backgrounds, embraces multiple perspectives, and fosters mutual respect between diverse groups represented in the community and beyond.
