It’s more important than ever before to provide experiences that build compassion, confidence, empathy and global connection. In fact, global communication and collaboration skills are now an essential section of National Common Core, Next Generation Science and ISTE Standards and are also a critical success factor in our increasingly global economy. By partnering with us, you can provide powerful learning experiences that not only meet these new standards, but also create meaningful connections between your students and peers from across the globe.

In all of Level Up Village’s pioneering STEAM (STEM + arts) courses, students collaborate on projects on a global scale. They also learn about the daily life and culture of their global partners through the exchange of video messages on our secure global communications platform. By partnering with us, schools help  sponsor STEAM education in the developing world: a portion of tuition is used to donate the same course and all supplies to one of our Global Partner organizations through our “Take a Class, Give a Class” model.
