Global Journal Project was a non-profit organization that enabled school communities to share stories and form relationships across international and cultural boundaries by raising awareness of global issues through the perspectives of member communities. Private, public, and international schools collaborated in a student-run business to produce a print and online magazine with content from partner-school communities. The profits earned by the Chapters were reinvested in service through community-based educational events and member-selected philanthropic projects.
Working from within the network of schools, GJP seeked to shed light on the range of perspectives and experiences of its member communities, raise awareness and understanding of global issues, and encourage discussion concerning these issues. Each GJP Chapter collected articles from any member of the partner-school communities, including students, faculty, and alumni. These articles covered a broad range of topics and promote open, mutually and culturally respectful dialogue.
The once inaugural Chapter of the GJP, the print and online magazine Global Vantage, involves Pacific Ridge School (Carlsbad, CA), Kibera Girls Soccer Academy (Kibera, Kenya), and Canyon Crest Academy (San Diego, CA). Join us on Facebook to receive updates and announcements.
Unfortunately, the GJP has dissolved but Global Vantage lives on as a non-profit working under Pacific Ridge School.
Anyone who wishes to use materials in Global Vantage, either in print or online, may do so at no cost and with proper citation. All materials can be used for educational purposes, and none may be used for profit not benefitting the three-school collaboration.
