Description

ORGANIZATIONAL PROFILE

Mission & vision

Global Citizen Year is an award-winning, non-profit social enterprise forging a new educational pathway for America's emerging leaders. By immersing a diverse corps of fellows in developing countries during a "bridge year" after high school, we prepare them for success in college, careers and our global economy.

Each year, we recruit and train a diverse corps of high potential high school graduates and support them through a transformative "bridge year"* before college. Through intensive training and immersion in communities across Africa, Latin America (and eventually Asia and the Middle East) our Fellows contribute to local efforts in education, technology, health and the environment while developing the global competence, entrepreneurial savvy and self-awareness they need to be transformative leaders in college, careers and life. We are re-defining education in America beyond this core program by partnering with colleges, media, and policy-makers.

Ultimately, we envision a world in which this bridge year becomes a common expectation and opportunity—transforming education, and unleashing the potential of our next generation as social innovators and global citizens.

Since our founding in 2009 by Harvard Business School graduate Abigail Falik, we have built a global team, board of directors and advisory council, and we have secured investments from leading individual and institutional funders including the Hewlett Foundation, the Nike Foundation, the Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation, and Harvard Business School. We have also been featured in national forums including the Clinton Global Initiative, the Aspen Ideas Festival, Pop!Tech the New York Times and NPR.

Values

Our core values are at the heart of everything we do, and we look for individuals who share our commitment to the following:

  • People: We hold people's dignity and well-being at the heart of our words and actions, and strive to build a high-performance and humane organization based on trust, respect for difference, and individual responsibility.
  • Potential: We believe that all people have the capacity to learn, grow and thrive and we are optimistic that through innovation, and collaboration across sectors we can create a more peaceful, sustainable and prosperous world.
  • Impact: We go above and beyond to expand the number of beneficiaries we serve, and we prioritize getting things done efficiently, while making a tangible and measurable difference to our Fellows, our communities at home, and our communities abroad.
