New Century Academy is excited to announce that we have been awarded a GCN-ISE Global Learners Grant that will provide seven students with an exciting opportunity to participate in a 15-day, cross-cultural volunteer program in Thailand in June 2015! The grant was awarded to NCA by Global Citizens Network (GCN) and Intercultural Student Experiences (ISE), two strategically aligned, Minneapolis-based nonprofit organizations with more than 60 years of combined experience working to increase cross-cultural understanding and cooperation through language and cultural immersion programs.

GCN and ISE will provide NCA with $28,000, which represents 80 percent of the program cost, and each participant will be required to contribute $900 for the remaining balance. Fundraising will be done to help defray the costs. Students participating in the program will meet regularly to prepare for the trip and meet specific learning objectives centered on academic enrichment, global engagement, and personal growth and maturity. You can learn more about GCN, ISE and the Global Learners Grant at GLG press release..
