Global Kids (GK) currently operates Youth Foreign Policy Summer Institutes in New York City and Washington, DC. Our goal is to replicate GK’s award-winning program model in the greater Little Rock area in the summer of 2019.
The GK-AR program will consist of a four-week international affairs and leadership development program. During the first two weeks, participants will explore key concepts in public policy and foreign affairs as well as international career opportunities. In the second half of the program, students will travel abroad for a service-learning trip to Haiti, Costa Rica, or the Dominican Republic. Upon returning to the U.S., each student will design and implement a peer education workshop and service project that educates and inspires their classmates to become active on issues affecting their own community and communities abroad. Additional details about the program structure may be found here.
Global Kids is now seeking support from schools, local businesses, like-minded organizations, and community members in the Little Rock area in order to make this vision a reality.
