World Savvy

United States
World Savvy is a national nonprofit creating inclusive and future-ready schools where young people thrive by supporting educators, school administrators and community leaders to reimagine learning for the 21st century. Since 2002, we have supported more than 735,000 middle and high school youth in 1,100 schools.

World Savvy educates and engages youth to learn, work, and thrive as responsible global citizens.

World Savvy is a national nonprofit educating and preparing youth with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions for success and active engagement in the global community. World Savvy’s approach to learning is based on the belief that students learn best when they are engaged in relevant and important issues that impact their communities and the world. We believe that students’ lived experiences and perspectives are assets that can be leveraged in learning every day.

As our country becomes more diverse, the global economy becomes more interconnected, and our collective challenges become increasingly complex and borderless, a new kind of teaching and learning is required to prepare the next generation.

That’s why we’re empowering educators to make school inclusive, relevant, and engaging for all students, inspiring them to learn, work, and thrive as responsible global citizens.

Our Four Guiding Principles:

Cultivating Connections: We identify and nurture connections to make learning personal and relevant.

Promoting Active, Interdisciplinary Learning: We build global competence through active learning experiences across disciplines.

Fostering Knowledge-to-Action: We support students to take informed action in their communities and world.

Reflecting & Adapting: We engage in ongoing reflection and adapt to emergent needs.
