Globalize DC serves as an information clearinghouse for all those involved and interested in K-12 global education in Washington, DC. We want to do all we can to help educators, students, and parents learn about and take advantage of the wealth of global education opportunities, resources, and programs available at little or no cost. Through our website, written communications, and face-to-face interactions, we want to be your best source for the latest information on what’s going on globally in the city as it relates to elementary, middle, and senior high school students.

Please note:  Because our goal is to provide accessible opportunities, we concentrate on free and almost free opportunities, rather than fee-based programs.
