Founded in 1998, the Global Nomads Group (GNG) is a non-profit organization dedicated to heightening children's understanding and appreciation for the world and its people. Global Nomads Group programs focus on storytelling, an interdisciplinary and powerful vehicle for young people to build empathy, global awareness, and action oriented skills. By exchanging their personal stories with one another, youth reflect on their families, cultures, communities, and contexts and allow them to make global issues personal, relevant, and actionable.

Awards, Quotes, Testimonials

"Since our initial conferences my students have changed. My students began to think outside of their intimate world of survival and they began to care about others who were a world away. My two-week unit on the Middle East became a nine-week unit by the urging of the students. From a teaching perspective, my job became easy; I had students who were eager to learn.?"- Educator from Washington, USA 


 "I think that this project, and others like it?..that we?re taking the first few steps to getting to know other cultures on a more one-to-one basis, on a more personal level. The fact that you know more about us makes us feel a lot better.?" - Student from Amman, Jordan

 "I had three students who, when I explained the program and what we were going to be doing they did not want to do the program; they wanted to opt out. They said this program had nothing to do with them... But I convinced them to stay in. These three boys, though, have gotten the most out of the program.They're always posting and learning so much. One of them said they would travel to Pakistan, that's what struck me the most because there's no way that he was traveling to Pakistan before the program." Educator from Kentucky, USA
