High School Network for Global Philanthropy


Where High School Students Meet Global Change Makers in
Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)

HighschoolNGOConnect.org Serves Twin Social Needs

Nonprofit academic enrichment in high schools spurs ideas that global Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) can implement.

Mission: Enable all high school students to become global citizens attuned to humanitarian challenges.

Means: Transport classrooms via Skype to global humanitarian hot spots where dynamic NGOs inspire engagement, spur self-confidence and impart skills that that advance education and careers.

Impact: When purposeful high school students focus their energy on goals, few rest before they see results. Students become advocates and advocacy hones leadership. Empowered leaders transform local and global communities.
