28th Session of the Youth Assembly: “Breakthrough to a Better Future”
This program is available through scholarship nominations only. The scholarships are funded by bp, a global energy company.
The AFS Youth Assembly brings together young leaders and changemakers worldwide, empowering them with opportunities to connect with peers and influencers, develop critical skills, and transform their vision for a better future through innovative action.
One of the Youth Assembly’s key demographics is young educators: leaders and catalysts for bringing about action and change through their practices, and preparing learners to tackle the most urgent challenges of the 21st century. Yet, few educators have the preparation and tools needed to incorporate global citizenship education into their daily work and foster students’ agency to take action on global issues.
The Global Educators Workshop at the Youth Assembly is a hands-on program track designed to assemble a motivated, international cohort of fifty young educators to engage in interactive learning and skill-building around global citizenship education. In a special full-day workshop preceding the AFS Youth Assembly, Global Educators will develop their own intercultural and global competencies as they explore how to foster them with their learners and communities beyond.
