Getting Involved

Global Outreach Includes:

  • Discussion and debate of environmental, developmental, human rights and peace initiatives
  • Promoting understanding, tolerance, goodwill and peace, contributing to a well-rounded student.

 


Schools can help bridge the gap by:

  • Providing help to struggling schools through one class, one school or an entire community partnering with a school in a developing country
  • Offering assistance to whatever level they are comfortable with, as needs are identified.
  • For principals, school staff and students to consider partnering with a school to develop global understanding, tolerance, good will and peace.

What Schools Beyond Borders Will Do:

  • Locate appropriate schools in developing countries where students lack educational “essentials” – textbooks, adequate nutrition, electricity or clean water
  • Contract a trustworthy volunteer liaison/coordinator in each developing country to organize efforts, provide fiscal responsibility and ensure program longevity
  • Match North American schools with developing country schools according to educational level (primary or secondary) and language (English or other)
  • Maintain ongoing relationships as liaison with both types of schools to share best practices, troubleshoot and audit fiscal responsibility
