economic and environmental challenges that are reshaping our global communities. Our teachers,
counsellors and partners prepare this generation for jobs that have not yet been created, for
technologies that have not yet been invented, and to solve problems that have not yet been anticipated.
A crucial part of providing an excellent education, Globeducate teachers inspire our students to find
their voice in this world. They encourage them to understand world events and to think about their
values and what is important to them, and to challenge ignorance and intolerance wherever they find it.
