Organize a Global Learning Program

A critical step in running a globally focused afterschool program is developing program policies that convey to all stakeholders (including youth participants, staff, partners, school leadership, community members, and others) that global learning is a priority. It is also important that your program be structured in a way that makes global competence accessible to all youth participants and capitalizes on the talents and skills of staff who plan and lead global learning activities. This section contains tools that help program directors create effective policies, recruit new staff with global expertise and tap into the expertise of existing staff, set up a program schedule that provides multiple global learning opportunities for all participants, and communicate with stakeholders about updated program policies related to global competence and global learning.
