Global Citizen Year is the gap year fellowship that gives you the experience, skills, and network you need to be a trailblazer. Each year Global Citizen Year recruits and trains a talented and diverse corps of high school graduates from across America and beyond and support them through a school-year long immersion in communities in India, Brazil, Ecuador and Senegal. Fellows live with a local family and work as apprentices supporting efforts in education, health, and the environment. Through training, coaching and structured reflection Fellows develop skills and perspectives that guide their education, shape their character, and inform their leadership.
