Global Action Circles Program

Peer-to-peer learning groups hosted by young people.

Meet our 2021 GAC Cohort

Global Action Circles - Applications now open!

Global Action Circles (GACs) are peer-to-peer learning journeys, hosted by our YxY youth hosts, where small groups of youth and adult learners meet every other week around an education-related theme and personal learning question. Our 2022 GAC themes include: Peace Education, Mental Health, Climate & Nature Education, Supporting Young Educators, Funding & Fundraising, and more. GACs are a uniquely “glocal” experience that enables participants to draw upon the power of global diversity and solidarity to advance local initiatives, and culminate with a final showcase at our annual YxY Learning Festival. Applications are CLOSED for our 2022 GACs - more details about future opportunities coming soon.a

What They Say

"Working on my learning question has inspired me to use the most basic resources I have to reach the goals I envisioned. So, starting with my community and those in my immediate environment, I can help change people's perceptions about children with intellectual disabilities." - GRACE AREVEESO, YxY Host & Activist, 2021 GAC Cohort
