World Savvy fosters inclusion, inquiry and understanding to develop a new generation of empathetic and engaged global citizens.

World Savvy is reimagining K-12 education for a more globally connected world. We know students must be prepared not only to succeed in the future, but also to take responsibility for a global community that will require even more resilient peacemakers, courageous problem solvers, and passionate leaders. Since 2002, we've reached more than 800,000 students and nearly 7,000 educators.

About the innovation

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, through our Comprehensive School Partnerships, we’re empowering educators and school leaders 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.
