Overview

Self-reported by organization

Numerous studies and reports have shown that learning another language helps students improve their academic success, creative thinking, as well as cognitive abilities such as problem solving, memory and reading. In addition, students who begin learning languages at a young age, such as in elementary school, have a higher chance of attaining near-native and even complete native fluency. Though many U.S. schoolchildren have an opportunity to learn a foreign language in elementary school, not all American students do. In New York State specifically, 97% of public elementary schools do not or cannot afford to provide courses for languages other than English. Most of these schools are located in underserved communities, and therefore schoolchildren in these communities are excluded from the cognitive and competitive benefits that learning a foreign language offers.Global Language Project wants to change that.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Dear Friends, In September 2009, Global Language Project launched its first language program for 30 eager third grade students at Harlem New York’s with the generosity and support of our Board, partners, funders and volunteers, Global Language Project continues to make great strides in language and cultural awareness education, broadening the horizon of professional and academic opportunities for children and ultimately enabling them to succeed in a globalized economy. At Global Language Project, we envision a world where every student is multilingual and possesses the cross cultural competencies to make them highly competitive and prepared to enter the workforce regardless of their socio-economic starting point. We know that the best approach to realizing this vision is to equip young people with a proficiency in a critical language, and to offer a global-oriented education that facilitates the desire to pursue higher education and broaden one’s professional and cultural experiences. We know that the support for this type of education must be comprehensive and long term—which is why our programs are designed to span the course of more than five years. Last year, we served more than 650 children in four public schools in the New York metropolitan area - and we continue to grow. Our services have never been so badly needed. It’s a challenging time, but also an exciting one. In our organization’s first Annual Report, we will show you what a difference your support has made and give you a sense of what lies ahead as we plan to strengthen and expand our impact. As Executive Director, and on behalf of the organization, we would like to say thank you for your part in all of this. With your help, we’ve made a huge difference so far, and we can make an even greater one in the coming years. Sincerely, Angela Jackson Founder and Executive Director"
