Global Education Coalition NYC

The Global Education Coalition is a network of NYC-based organizations whose primary objective is to support educators in the New York metropolitan area in creating globally competent youth for tomorrow's future.

GEC-NYC 2.0 Kickoff!

On December 7th, over 23 global education professionals gathered at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to relaunch the Global Education Coalition of New York City (GEC-NYC).  This relaunch came after a process of reevaluating the goals and structure of the coalition.  At the event, a new steering committee was announced, along with updated membership structures, and a revised terms of reference (ToR). Highlights of the changes include:

  • More inclusivity: ways for more organizations and individuals to get involved;
  • Rebalancing of professional development: adding an emphasis on PD for coalition members;
  • More productive (and appealing) meetings: more topic-based, more guest speakers, less general updates;
  • More professionalism: a more formal membership structure, including payment of dues.

The meeting wasn’t all business; we concluded with a social happy hour! We are excited about the new and improved GEC-NYC and we welcome interested global education organizations and individual professionals to join us!
