Organizational History/Mission
World Savvy is a national education nonprofit that partners with educators, schools, and districts to ensure students are ready to compete and lead in the 21st century as responsible global citizens and changemakers.

Since 2002, World Savvy has reached over 405,000 youth and nearly 3,000 educators.  By working through teachers, schools, and districts, we affect systemic change. The most profound impact of World Savvy’s programs are evidenced by educator and student engagement – our programs make teaching and learning experiential, and relevant for a changing world.  As a result, students acquire the kind of knowledge, skills, and dispositions that not only prepare them for college, career, and life in a global society, but help them identify as global citizens who are motivated to contribute to peace, justice and sustainability for our world.
