TakingITGlobal's mission is to empower youth to understand and act on the world's greatest challenges.

We use the power of online community to facilitate global education, social entrepreneurship, and civic engagement for millions of youth worldwide. Founded in 1999, our award-winning www.tigweb.org is the leading social network for global citizenship, bringing together over 340,000 members with more than 22,000 non-profit organizations across 13 languages. Our TIGed program serves over 2,400 schools in 118 countries with professional development, engaging lesson plans, and collaborative global projects.

Vision

Youth everywhere actively engaged and connected in shaping a more inclusive, peaceful and sustainable world.
