Seth Dixon's insight:

The AAG has requested that I share this with geography educators and I'm delighted to do so because this is fantastic program; please encourage students to apply for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  "This program aims to provide opportunities for youth to learn more about online geospatial technologies and how to apply them in service to their communities, while gaining a deeper understanding about different places and cultures of the world.  It is conducted by the Association of American Geographers (AAG) with funding and support from the US Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, Youth Programs Division. The MyCOE partnership has actively led more than ten years of youth leadership programs, finding solutions to sustainable development challenges in local communities using geographic concepts and tools, while connecting with each other globally."

Tony Aguilar's curator insight, October 31, 2013 9:11 AM

This is an amazing opportunity for high school students to network build relationships and glean knowledsge and learn ways to plug into their community and their world around them. This allows students to learn more about geographic technolgies to understand mapping and climate changes and would be an amazing opportuinty for students to find their vocation and find ways to plug into people who work in their communities and it seems though that the school is only available in Bolivia Panama and South Africa. We need more students that are more aware geograhically and able to meet the needs in a changing global climate.
