Opportunities Overview

The DC Center for Global Education and Leadership’s first objective is to serve as an information clearinghouse for all those involved and interested in K-12 global education in Washington, DC.  We want to do all we can to help educators, students, and parents learn about and take advantage of the wealth of global education opportunities, resources, and programs available at little or no cost in DC.  Many of these opportunities are made available through members of the CGEL Partner Collaborative, who are specifically committed to expanding and improving global education for DCPS students and teachers.

Through our website, written communications, and face-to-face interactions, we want to be your best source for the latest information on all that’s going on globally in the city as it relates to elementary, middle, and senior high school students.
