Mission Statement

Our mission is to prepare a new generation of Americans to provide innovative and effective leadership to address the global challenges of the 21 st century. To do this we:

  • Recruit a diverse corps of high-potential high school graduates as GCY Fellows;
  • Train our Fellows through intensive programs in the U.S. and abroad;
  • Support our Fellows through apprenticeships in Asia, Africa, and Latin America during a bridge year between high school and college; and
  • Sustain a dynamic network of alumni who remain engaged in global issues during college and beyond.

With our support, GCY Fellows develop empathy, an ethic of service, the ability to communicate across languages and cultures, and a better understanding of the world and their place in it.

Description

Global Citizen Year is a non-profit organization building a movement of young Americans who engage in a transformative "bridge year" between high school and college. Through an innovative cross-sector model that partners with high schools and colleges in the US and NGOs around the world, we create opportunities for emerging leaders to work as apprentices in Asia, Africa and Latin America. By providing intensive training and support, we ensure that our Fellows develop an ethic of service, the ability to communicate across languages and cultures, and a deep commitment to becoming agents for social change.
