What We Do

Changing the world one student at a time. We create the next generation of global citizens by exposing African-American youth to international travel, leadership development, entrepreneurship, education, careers, cultural immersion, and sports. Offering a global edge allows students to broaden their worldview in their everyday lives and have a positive impact on their communities and the world. This offers a pathway into foreign affairs, ambassadorship, international relations, and many other areas that result in a global impact. Our Learning Journeys take students on virtual educational tours to countries abroad where they learn about the history and culture of the destination from our international team of professionals. Students will hear from educators, entrepreneurs, athletes, artists, and other business professionals who meet the standards of our 5-pillar curriculum. Topics will include but are not limited to diplomacy, advocacy, and social justice, climate change, cultural practices, international educational and career options, sports, and the arts. We offer international life training and job readiness skills through summer internships We prepare students for the US Youth Ambassadors Program, we are pleased to announce we have two students that will participate in the 2021 US Youth Ambassadors Program with Brazil. Our Youth Ambassador, you are now part of the US Department of State’s prestigious global network of exchange participants.
