WE INVITE EDUCATORS TO NOMINATE STUDENTS FOR GLOBAL CITIZEN YEAR
About Global Citizen Year
Global Citizen Year is a non-profit launching a new generation with the perspectives, skills and networks to solve humanity’s most urgent challenges. Each year we recruit a diverse corps of talented young people from across the globe to take part in our transformative programs combining curriculum, coaching and lived experience.
In our immersive program, Take Action Lab, students gain lifelong skills during a semester in South Africa, where they’ll learn from experienced human rights advocates working to advance social justice. Together with a diverse cohort of peers, students will collaborate and contribute to local solutions for global challenges.
How to Nominate
To nominate a student, simply take 2 minutes to fill out the form below.
Your nomination awards each student a $500 merit scholarship if they join the program. Once you nominate a student, we’ll follow up with them to share more information about our program and help them determine if Global Citizen Year is a good fit for them! The nomination is non-binding – it’s completely up to the student to choose whether to apply and whether to enroll.
Eligibility: High school graduates worldwide, ages 17 – 21
