THE STORY:

The Goal of the CGI program is to introduce urban teenagers to global experiences through studying languages and culture from other countries. The competitive program is delivered to a selected group of teenagers over 18-months. The application package, complete with guidelines and application, is sent to every public and public charter school in the District of Columbia and many churches and recreational centers. HSCDC concentrates on finding a diverse group of District of Columbia teenagers who are interested in learning about various cultures through language training and culture awareness.

Phase I of the program is an intensive and fast paced 8-week summer program that introduces students to the language and culture of the country being studied. Phase II is a 4- hour bi-monthly (on Saturday) commitment from October-May. Phase III consists of the international travel to the country being studied. In the past, students have traveled to China. Future CGI Fellows will have the opportunity to travel to Europe, Africa, South America, and back to Asia.





During the span of the program, students travel to other cities and states to visit culture sites, museums, and exhibits. CGI fellows are also privileged to hear local authors read from their novels; elected officials share their vision for the city; teachers and community leaders teaching valuable lessons.
