13 Low-Wealth Counties Join Global Teachers Fellowship

We are thrilled to announce that 13 low-wealth counties have signed on with our Global Teachers Fellowship!

Every year, a teacher from each of these counties will join our global education experience. This opportunity is made possible by $1 million in State funding to be used as matching funds for Tier 1 and 2 counties. Never has access to our brand of global education been available to educators from so many diverse communities across our state.

A teacher from each of these 13 counties will participate in our 18-month professional development experience:

• Craven
• Edgecombe
• Graham
• Jones
• Lenoir
• Madison
• Mitchell
• Nash
• Polk
• Wayne
• Wilson
• Wilkes
• Yadkin

One Teacher from Every County, Every Year
An effort is underway to assure that one teacher from every county in North Carolina participates in the Global Teacher Fellowship every year. To learn more, please contact GGNC Founder and Board Member Millie Ravenel.

Matching Funds Are Still Available
School systems in low-wealth counties (Tier 1 and Tier 2) are eligible for State matching funds. For a one-time match of $40,000 or $50,000, a low-wealth county gains a place for a K-12 teacher on our Global Teachers Fellowship, in perpetuity. We still have funding available for additional counties; funding is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. To learn more, please contact GGNC Founder and Board Member Millie Ravenel.
