Global Initiatives Program
Connecting K-12 students and educators from around the world
Since its inception in July 2011, the goal of the Global Initiatives Program at Trinity Valley School has been to prepare our students to become globally-connected, conscientious citizens and leaders through virtual and in-person exchanges.
In five years, our students and faculty have connected with students, educators, and others in Antarctica, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, the Bahamas, Belgium, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, China (Taiwan & the mainland), the Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Greenland, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Hungary, Malta, Mauritania, Mexico, Morocco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Swaziland, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, the UK (including Scotland, Northern Ireland, and England), Vietnam, and Zambia (52 nations/territories on all 7 continents).
In doing so, our students, faculty, staff, and parents are better prepared to become positive, conscientious leaders in our homes, communities, workplaces, and beyond. This program also equips our students with essential global competencies and life skills, such as self-awareness, empathy, cross-cultural communication, and cross-cultural understanding.
Ultimately, we aim to Create a Culture of Dignity and Empathy through Virtual and In-person Exchanges, a K-12 Global Education Program, and Faculty Development and Training in Global Education.
