World Savvy’s approach to learning is based on the belief that students learn best when they are engaged in relevant and important issues that impact their communities and the world. We believe that students’ lived experiences and perspectives are assets that can be leveraged in learning every day.
We partner comprehensively with schools and districts to integrate global competence in K-12 teaching, learning, and culture. This is a dynamic process that isn’t a one-size-fits-all program model, so our partnerships demand responsiveness.
Our Guiding Principles
For lasting impact, we ground our efforts in four fundamental principles:
We identify and nurture connections to make learning personal and relevant.
We build global competence through active learning experiences across disciplines.
We support students to take informed action in their communities and the world.
We engage in ongoing reflection and adapt to emergent needs.

Insights from Our Partners
"Perhaps most important is the ways in which World Savvy has supported our Cohort's development of global competencies; as leaders, we are encouraged to do the deep work of sorting out where we are, where we would like to be, and how we can best get there. If you are looking for an organization to facilitate leadership work in your district or school around creating inclusive, adaptive, and future-ready classrooms, I highly recommend World Savvy."
