Almost every week, we launch a new national campaign. The call to action is always something that has a real impact and doesn’t require money, an adult, or a car.

Think Global School

THINK Global School is a non-profit private high school that offers teenagers a once-in-a-lifetime international experience. TGS students don't simply "study abroad." They immerse themselves in 12 countries over 12 trimesters, studying with premier teachers, experts, and local guides. Imagine taking a biology class in the Galapagos Islands, a Mandarin class at the Great Wall of China, and a government class in the chambers of Swedish parliament!

The school's mission is to develop true citizens of the world, problem-solving and risk-taking young people who will become leaders in the multicultural and multilingual world of the 21st century. The student body is a miniature United Nations, representing 15 countries of citizenship and a diverse range of talents, experiences, and interests.

THINK Global School is an official candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, and will complete its authorization as an IB World School in the spring of 2012. Its challenging curriculum emphasizes experiential learning, collaborative research, and an integrated mobile technology program.

At each international destination, a world-class host school provides classrooms, science labs, and art studios. TGS students also interact with local peers through joint classes, workshops, and athletic events. This innovative "traveling school" model helps teenagers develop cultural literacy, critical thinking, and the courage to challenge the status quo.
