Mission Statement

Provide urban youth from low-income communities with the skills and perspective that enable them to affect positive change in their lives, communities, and the global community.

Global Potential provides youth from low-income communities with the necessary skills to effect positive change in their lives, communities, and the global community through engagement in leadership training, service learning, an international cultural exchange, and social entrepreneurship. We give them an unprecedented opportunity to go through a training program at their high school and gain specific employment and life skills, receive mentoring and leadership training, and then travel to live and volunteer in a rural village in a developing country for 6 weeks. The participants then take their new knowledge and confidence back into their local communities and use social entrepreneurship models to implement action plans for projects that they have created. They thus become advocates and catalysts for social change in their own communities. The lasting purpose of our program, beyond equipping youth with life skills, job readiness, and global awareness, is to enable them to interact across cultures, and develop enterprising solutions to community needs.
