California Global Education Project provides professional learning experiences and support for K-12 educators to develop the knowledge, skills, resources, and leadership needed to foster global competence in all students.

Developing the Potential in Every Global Citizen

The California Global Education Project (formerly the California International Studies Project) promotes global competence for all students through high quality, standards-based, and interdisciplinary professional learning programs for PK-12 educators in California. CGEP collaborates with teachers, schools, districts, and education partners committed to developing global citizenship, which enhances curiosity, creativity, empathy, integrity, and agency while learning about personal, community, and global identities and issues.

While our work focuses on professional learning for K-12 educators in California, the results are seen in students as they share the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of global competence.
