We help teachers bring the world to North Carolina classrooms

NC Teacher in India.2013

Go Global NC’s Global Teachers program, founded in 1995, provides professional development to K-12 teachers from across North Carolina through an in-depth learning experience about the history, culture and environment of other countries. Programs begin in the spring with an intense orientation workshop, followed by a 10- to 14-day international immersive learning experience abroad in the summer. In the fall, Go Global NC leads an action-planning workshop, which creates a platform for collaboration and creativity to ensure teachers are prepared to share their global experiences in their own North Carolina classrooms. Teachers from all grade levels and all subject areas use their new global experiences to ignite an interest in global engagement and cooperation among their
students and in their communities.

Through Go Global NC's Global Teachers programs:
