TakingITGlobal is one of the world’s leading networks of young people learning about, engaging with, and working towards tackling global challenges.
We recognize that lasting positive change can only be achieved when every member of society is actively involved in supporting young people reach his or her full potential. By bringing together Digital Youth Engagement, Global Education and Social Innovation programming, we seek to empower youth and their allies to ensure every young person and their interest has a place to learn, grow and flourish.
Our programs empower young people to understand and act on the world’s greatest challenges. Since our founding in 1999, we’ve been dedicated to our motto of “inform, inspire, and involve” which has become the pathway to action for our programs.
Often described as a “social network for social good,” the award-winning www.tigweb.org is available in 13 languages and offers a diverse set of educational resources and action tools that give young people the tools they need to succeed. Since our launch in 2000, more than 40 million people have accessed the website to learn, grow and realize their potential.
