Design the “Model” exchange program that actively addresses barriers to studying abroad.
Launch services and programs to support curriculum internationalization.
We know that...
- International Travel can be a transformative experience for anyone involved.
- Global Education can be a powerful for positive social change as it builds skills needed to live in a global world.
- Barriers like cost, culture and curriculum block access to global education programming for African and Native American, low-income, STEM, community college, LGBT and First Generation students.
- What are the inclusion and diversity strategies that noticeably increase participation of underrepresented groups in Study Abroad and Exchange Programs?
- What support do Global Education advocates want and need to internationalize their projects and curriculum?
- What is the impact of a global framework on High School Extracurricular and After School programs?
Going Glocal - Projects for Global Citizenship
In October 2014, InSolidarity began a participatory research process into "Education Access" with Alumni from Global Glimpse and Global Leadership Adventures.
Since October, participants have identified Education as a "glocal" issue, relevant in all parts of the world, and began investigating what can be done to improve education at Oakland High School.
We are on the last leg of our project. Stay tuned for the report!
Globalize was two weeks of Global Education advocacy and activity to help elementary, middle and high school communities explore Global learning and it’s relevance. In collaboration with Bay Area Community Resources; Afterschool Programs we surveyed over 30 educators, hosted a series of workshops and events exposing students and educators to global issues and tools to build global learning.
In January 2013, InSolidarity and BAJI joined forces to accomplish a long held dream: travel to Haiti to investigate human rights abuses, the US role in said abuses and what Americans can do to act in solidarity with Haitians. Read the report here.

Aja is a self declared “Study Abroad Baby” and after three years living and study abroad, and three years working in international education, it became evident that socio-economic background was a major indicator of participation in international education programs. Based on this, Aja became InSolidarity Project Director with Practicing Freedom Collective. Her personal mission is to advocate for and build equity in global education and citizenship.
