Youth investigate their community’s relationship to global hunger by exploring how we produce, consume and waste food. This course brings to life everyday food items, engages youth in exploring local food rituals, applies root cause analysis to this global issue, and inspires youth to make small changes in their local communities to reduce food waste. Youths learn the interconnected nature of the meals they eat and the responsibility they each carry to help eliminate food waste and food loss.

How it Works
Engaging Video Episodes
Youth (ages 12-19) explore a global theme through video episodes that include engaging content and global peer story exchange. Video episodes include captioning (in English and Arabic), ASL interpretation and image descriptions.
Interactive Online Courses
Youth (ages 12-19) explore a global theme through engaging content and curated resources, interactive activities, and story exchange with their global peers.
Youth (ages 16-25) engage in youth-facilitated live discussions with their global peers and join a vibrant online community that explores and celebrates our differences and connections.
Facilitated Live Events
Our trained facilitators lead discussion groups in which youth (ages 12-19) can learn with and from their global peers about a pressing global issue and about each other’s lives.
Storytelling Creates Change
In order for youth to find each other’s lives plausible, Global Nomads Group leverages the power of storytelling. Rather than have global youth share opinions and information about themselves with one another, we engage them in sharing stories with one another.
The stories are often brief, yet impactful, revealing deep truths through small moments, bringing social issues to life through day-to-day realities a deep-rooted global issue.
Learning Standards Alignment
Guided by academic research and deep empathy for young people’s interests and experiences, our standards-aligned curricula help youth develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to thrive in the 21st century. Through sharing stories and building human connections, youth are inspired to explore global issues through a personal, local and global lens and lead positive change in their communities.
