Global Up is a research-based interactive program that equips learners with tangible global competence skills through versions developed for different age-groups (adults and teens) and audiences (HEI, workplaces, schools, and more). At the end of the program, learners earn the AFS Global Competence Certificate.
LEARNING AS A JOURNEY OF CHANGE
AFS believes that intercultural challenges and learning moments are inevitable parts of our everyday lives, our classrooms and public spaces. To prepare students to engage effectively across cultural and other differences, we take our young participants on a transformative learning journey. Through our programs and other offerings, we help participants:
- Learn firsthand about the impact of culture on values and the decisions
- Gain the ability to better see themselves through the eyes of others
- Challenge assumptions,
- Broaden their views on cultural stereotypes and global issues,
- Begin to understand how to shift perspectives effectively, appropriately and
