Join the Global Conversation
Give your students an opportunity to learn from their peers, ask questions, and share their stories. During these 60-minute live Zoom events, participants will meet their fellow Student to World global peers, discuss the topics they’re participating in, and dive into their action plans.
Trained youth facilitators will guide attendees in breakout rooms where they will be able to express themselves and have a live conversation. Youth participating in any Student to World topic are welcome to join!
Please note: Our live events are optional and we do our best to accommodate our diverse participants by scheduling dates on various days and times. We are unable to schedule live events for one specific class at this time.
What to Expect During a Live Event

- Our team of facilitators will lead the discussions and foster a safe and open environment for youth to connect with their global peers.
What is my role as an Educator during a Live Event?
To ensure a valuable and student-focused experience, we kindly ask you to adhere to the following guidelines during the upcoming Live Event:
Observer Role: Educators are welcome to participate as observers in the event. We encourage you to take this opportunity to witness the enriching discussions and interactions among our youth participants. That said, if any of your students violate our community norms, we kindly request your assistance in reinforcing them.
Facilitator-Supported Conversations: Our trained and experienced facilitators will guide the conversations and create a safe space for youth to connect and share. Please allow our facilitators to support the discussions to maintain a youth-centric environment, as our courses are designed for youth, by youth. We explicitly ask that you do not contribute your thoughts or opinions to this conversation.
Technical Support: Please assist students with any technical difficulties they may encounter.
Microphone and Camera Use: Please keep your microphone on mute during the duration of the youth-centric conversations, unless you need to intervene to reinforce community norms. Educators can opt to have their cameras on or off, but we do encourage all youth participants to have their cameras on whenever possible.
Sharing Feedback and Insights: We highly value your insights and feedback as educators. We invite you to engage with our dedicated Facilitator Community—an online platform designed for educators to share ideas, experiences, and feedback. Additionally, you can also share your thoughts and comments with your assigned Program Coordinator via email.
