Our Social Media and Blog are two ways to stay connected, engaged, and informed. We feature everything from leading educational research, international economics, Africa news, ways to participate in educational fundraising, and profiles of key youth, educators, and staff from the field.

One of our favorite series is the “pay-it-forward” testimonies from our young people and communities who are actively creating the change they believe is necessary. All are guaranteed to inform and inspire.
