We’re now officially Globalize DC. You may have known us as the DC Center for Global Education and Leadership (or CGEL). We have a new name now but the same mission – to leverage the unique resources of the nation’s capital to ensure that our city’s young people are prepared for the global future they will inhabit. We hope you enjoy the website and please let us know what you think!
Opening the world to our city’s youth
Globalize DC focuses exclusively on increasing access for DC’s public school students to high quality global education, language learning, and study abroad opportunities. We have adopted five strategies to do this work.
Connecting to a global city
Washington, DC is both our home town and a global capital. Globalize DC works to bridge the gap between the city’s unique wealth of global resources and our own local students, educators, and schools.
