Global Visionaries

A nonprofit organization


Global Visionaries empowers young people to become global leaders in creating a just and sustainable future.


Global Visionaries is a deliberately diverse youth-led leadership organization. Our multi-year leadership program is designed to frame local issues in a global context, helping Seattle students from across socio-economic circumstances come together and work as a team.

Our program challenges students to build relationships that extend beyond borders, stereotypes, and politics in order to inspire a new generation of global leaders. Youth participate in workshops, meetings, and local community service projects throughout the year while they prepare for a culminating two-week educational, cultural, and service immersion experience in Guatemala.

We believe that truly empathetic leadership is best developed through interactions with a diverse group of peers. Our goal is to recruit cohorts made up of 50% youth of color and 50% white youth; 50% youth from low-income families and 50% youth from middle-to upper-income families. Thus, Global Visionaries provides scholarships for participants ranging from 5-100% of their program costs. In 2019, 70% of participants self-identified as BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and/or low-income.
