Global Partners Junior

Global Partners Junior Summer Program

July 8 – August 23, 2013

Junior Summer Program 2012 Post Card

In partnership with the New York Public Library, NYC Global Partners will offer a 7-week summer program to library branches in New York City and schools in Johannesburg, Melbourne, Mumbai, Rio de Janeiro, and Sydney.  Students collaborate on the same curriculum, Living Cities, which focuses on global awareness and environmental sustainability in cities around the globe. The curriculum consists of four activities: in-class research and discussion, online exchanges with other global classrooms, development of multimedia projects, and field trips. Students will share their learning with their international peers through blog posts, discussion forums, and video chats.  The program will culminate with a multimedia project in which students promote innovative green spaces in their communities through podcasts, websites, documentary videos and other digital media. Additional highlights will include visits to local energy-efficient buildings and community gardens. At the end of the summer, students will participate in an exhibition to present their work and receive recognition for their achievements as global citizens.

Program Goals
Project-based learning and online communication reinforce vital literacy, technology, and critical thinking skills needed for success in today's interconnected world.  Global Partners Junior develops interest in diverse cultures, encouraging our urban youth to think beyond their city blocks. Projects teach students to take pride in their local communities and find innovative ways to make their cities stronger, applying what they have learned from their international peers. As they participate in international discussion, students also gain content knowledge of environmental sustainability.  

How It Works
Global Partners Junior will run for seven weeks from July 8 to August 23. Students must commit to attend program activities two to three times per week for a weekly total of four to six hours. Schedules will vary by library branch. Participation in this unique program is free for all students.   For more information and to enroll, contact the children’s librarian at the following participating branches:
