These Seminars facilitate:

  • National, Regional and Worldwide opportunities for collaborative programs and discussions concerning secondary school interests and issues
  • Reviews of thematic issues such as leadership and team building, environmentalism, uses of technology, and community service
  • The sharing of ideas, information and people
  • Recognition and support of roles and relationships between advantaged and less-advantaged schools globally
  • Collaboration in the planning and outcomes of coordinated programs among like-minded schools worldwide
  • Participation in the future of cross-cultural, school-to-school projects in community service, experiential education or simply exchanges between academic staff and students

Global Connections is recognized as a not-for-profit entity. As of this date there have been no membership dues or fees required of interested educators. The only payment is for the cost of participation in the annual Seminar, a portion of which also provides funds for the attendance of less-advantaged school leaders and the actual out-of-pocket cost of those convening the Seminar.
