Create a new generation of global leaders

Together at Global Citizen Year we’re transforming lives everyday.

We’re in the business of building empathy and unlocking leadership potential. We care deeply about providing students from all backgrounds with the opportunity to immerse in a different culture during a gap year between high school and college. We’re not just building a world-class program; we’re building a movement.


We’re Growing!

We want the passionate, the scrappy, the curious and creative. We want the business savvy and the human-centered. We want problem-solvers.
