Bring the world to your learners

Our Global Connections program promotes the Peace Corps' Third Goal of teaching Americans about the world by providing multicultural educational resources and free intercultural exchanges.

About the program

Established in 1989, Global Connections (previously known as Paul D. Coverdell World Wise Schools) is dedicated to promoting global learning through lesson plans, activities, and events — all based on Peace Corps Volunteer experiences.

Educators, youth development leaders, clubs, camps, and community groups can also 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.

Connect your learners with a Volunteer currently serving in the Peace Corps.

Submit a Global Connections request

Returned Peace Corps Volunteers who are participating in the Global Connections program can find lesson plans, activity templates, best practices, and more on the Share Your Experience page.
