How does this organization make a difference?

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.

Executive Director

Elisabeth Shovers

BIO

Elisabeth moved to New York, after teaching kindergarten and first grade as a Teach For America Corps member in Chicago where she also earned her M.Ed. Prior to that, she received a B.A. in International Affairs from the George Washington University where she wrote her thesis on the Importance of Integrating Multicultural Education Programs into DC public schools, and then spent a year teaching English in France.

As a lover of languages, Elisabeth has studied French, Spanish, German, Hebrew, Mandarin, Hindi, and Wolof. Whenever she has the chance, she spends long periods of time immersed in different countries soaking up culture, language, and traditions. To date, she has lived in Germany, France, Senegal, and India and traveled to many other places. She realizes how influential these experiences have been, and wants to create the same opportunities for all GLP students.
