TakingITGlobal

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.

Who We Serve

We serve youth primarily between the ages of 13 to 30 through:

What We Offer:

  • Global online social network and hub for civic participation
  • Content & tools for educators to facilitate rich, interactive learning experiences
  • Outreach & Collaboration tools for events, networks, campaigns, and causes
  • Research, development, and sharing of best practices on youth engagement
  • Facilitated learning experiences through workshops, webinars, and e-courses

Why Bother?

  • Global awareness and understanding across cultures is key to the future of the planet
  • Student dropout and disengagement rates are at all-time highs, and costing billions in lost economic opportunities and crime
  • Preventable diseases and health issues are on the rise globally, with young people often the most vulnerable and affected

So Far...

  • 4.5 million young people reached in 2010, over 30 million since launch in 2000
  • Engagement across 13 languages, and in every country and territory in the world
  • Thought leadership through presenting at over 500 education, technology, development, business, and youth conferences and events
  • Partnerships across sectors with over 8 U.N. agencies, dozens of international civil society organizations, several top-tier technology companies (Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco, Best Buy, Staples), and leading-edge foundations across North America.
  • Global recognition from the World Economic Forum and Tech Museum of Innovation
