Global Education Partners and Programs

Preparing a future workforce for success in a globally competitive economy involves a mastery of cross cultural and collaborative skill sets. TGA's ongoing commitment to global education is evidenced in both its strong partnerships and solid programs.

 

TGA incorporates Tulsa's broad network of cultural groups in activities that encourage and promote cultural understanding to area youth. In addition, TGA partners with area K-12 schools, colleges, and supporters to help incorporate global education into ongoing instruction.

Global education is not just about exchange programs or learning a foreign language.
It is also about helping our youth develop skill sets for understanding and appreciating cultural differences and similarities. And it is a lifelong process--regardless of age, income, or location.
 
TGA is proud to partner with local schools and libraries to provide access to and programming for valuable cultural learning opportunities.  Likewise, TGA works with area colleges as well as the broader community via internships and organizational involvement.

A program of Tulsa Global Alliance in partnership with Eisenhower International School in Tulsa, culture boxes continue to be a great addition to any classroom or organization presentation. Each box contains cultural artifacts, books, musical instruments, fabrics, and other expressions of more than 40 unique countries, regions, and cultures. TGA is grateful to Eisenhower International School, which houses the boxes and coordinates the check-out program.

The Tucky Roger Fellowship provides financial assistance through TGA for teachers and educators throughout the Tulsa Metropolitan Service Area. It supports efforts their efforts to promote global awareness, education, and understanding by visiting Tulsa's Sister Cities and by serving as a resource for TGA, educational institutions, and students.

Educators and Parents: Stay tuned! After many years of presenting the Kids' World International Festival, we are in the process of delivering a more flexible, customizable, and innovative global education experience.
