Know Your Community - Know Your World

KYCKYW is a global education initiative designed to bring international and community members into school class rooms to better understand countries, cultures and religions around the world and in their own back yards. By exposing students to real life social studies we enhance their learning of 21st century skills and global competencies, so they can be an engaged member of the global economy.
