Global Kids provides students throughout New York City with opportunities for civic and global engagement. At the High School for Global Citizenship in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, Global Kids works with students to expand their knowledge of international relations and social justice issues, and build study and life skills through the Power of Citizenry (POC) program. In reviewing the students’ New York State Regents exam scores, Global Kids staff observed that the passing rate on the Global History and Geography exam was significantly lower than those in other subject Regents exams. To help increase the passing rate of the Global History and Geography Regents exam, Global Kids will incorporate an intensive Regents preparation unit into their POC curriculum.
