Bring the world to your learners
About the program
Established in 1989, the Paul D. Coverdell World Wise Schools program is dedicated to promoting global learning through lesson plans, activities, and events—all based on Peace Corps Volunteer experiences.
Through the Global Connections program, educators, youth development leaders, clubs, camps, and community groups can request a connection with a current or returned Peace Corps Volunteer who can share their story of service, and facilitate cross-cultural exchanges. Peace Corps Volunteers can help introduce learners to new world languages and cultures, promote empathy and intercultural understanding, and build global citizenship.
