Global Citizenship Schools Programme

Project Trust sends 300 young people overseas to do inspirational work in over 20 countries every year. Our volunteers return with a heightened sense of global awareness and are available to share their experiences with your students.

We launched an ambitious Global Citizenship Programme in 2012/13. Through our exciting programme, Returned Volunteers have been able to share the benefit of their experiences overseas with other young people in education through working with a number of Primary and Secondary schools on Global Citizenship initiatives. Every session delivered has been rated as either ‘Outstanding’ or ‘Good’ by teachers and students in the host schools.

Project Trust’s Global Citizenship Schools Programme teaches the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) for the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA).

Our Global Citizenship Ambassadors (aged 19-23) have all spent 8 or 12 months volunteering in challenging teaching and social care placements across Asia, Africa and the Americas. They aim to bring their first-hand experiences of other cultures and global issues to classrooms and sessions can be specifically based on the CRC on request.

Types of Session

  • Hour long assemblies

  • One-off workshops

  • A series of workshops

“The Global Citizenship Programme is a relatively new addition to Project Trust’s repertoire. It gives us the chance as Returned Volunteers to empower and educate through the phenomenal experiences we have gained on our year overseas, offering sessions to school and social groups on a variety of topics including HIV/AIDS, poverty, religion, language and culture. Being part of the Global Citizenship programme is an absolute privilege, and as a Project Trust Global Citizenship Ambassador I am in a wonderful position to promote it, be that in the form of getting teachers involved whilst on recruitment talks or sneakily leaving flyers around staff rooms. It is an inspiring way to continuously relive one of the best years of your life and help young people flourish with new found perspectives on the world.”

Helen, Project Trust Global Citizenship Ambassador
