Bring the world to your learners

World Wise Schools promotes the Peace Corps' Third Goal of teaching Americans about the world by providing educational resources to promote global competence.

I've been working with the World Wise Schools program for a long time, and have even had the opportunity to work with two of my former students. This program is so beneficial for our students Stateside, and they look forward to the correspondence.
