• DEFYING BARRIERS

    OUR MISSION

    NetWings Corp is a 501c3 committed to creating opportunities of exposure for youths to defy barriers of geography, language, culture, and experience.

     

    Our intent is to build a more confident, knowledgeable, and empathetic global citizen with heightened social, professional, and cultural competencies.

     

    It is through traveling with student delegations around the world to attend prestigious conferences while engaging in cross cultural experiences and writing Case Studies along the way that NetWings revolutionizes the way youths learn beyond their local communities.

    Redefining American

    "Traveling outside of the US broadened my understanding of what it means to be a global citizen, as well as strengthened my pride and love that I call home. In interacting with students from throughout the world, I came to the realization that our world is a better place when we work in unison, and that diversity can instill values of success and collaboration. When we work in community we can balance out inequalities and further intersect works relating to the economy, society, and politics, regardless of specific identities."

    Impact of Exposure

    We are a generation fueled with potential. We are generation electrified with competence. But we need to find an outlet.We will only begin to gain a sense of global awareness, to think freely and critically, if we are given the opportunity to understand, to see, and to experience the world. Selected as a NetWings Corp Delegate, I traveled to Cologne, Germany in March, 2017. Over the course of a week, I acquired amiable friendships with students from throughout the world. In doing so, I feel as if I have discovered colors I have never seen before; emotions I have never felt before.

  • CURRICULUM PILLARS

    NetWings revolutionizes the way youths learn beyond their local communities. Unlike typical study abroad programs, NetWings students participate in prestigious conferences around the world with a specific purpose to build international networks, understand local policies, and actively delve into current global issues by developing their own case studies.

     

     

     

     

    MOBILITY & EXPOSURE

    For many underrepresented students, a limitation in environment can oftentimes serve as the biggest culprit in hindering their view of possibilities and construction of perspectives. We view exposure as a tool to achieve economic mobility and as a way to build social capital. By Introducing youth to travel, we develop exposure to the world, to new cities, states, and countries in order to break down barriers of limited exposure.

    STORYTELLING THROUGH CASE STUDIES

    In marrying storytelling and the case study method in our curriculum, students have the opportunity to build educational concepts in a more relevant manner. Each Student Delegation is assigned an economic, political, or social challenge relevant to the country they are visiting and is responsible for developing a solution through writing a collaborative case study. Once published, these cases are later used to teach within local communities in various contexts.

    PROFESSIONAL

    BILINGUALISM

    We promote effective bilingualism; the value of not only speaking various languages but perfecting language proficiency in professional and academic settings. Students practice how to convey ideas in a clear, inclusive, and global way while participating in international conferences. More importantly, students become exposed to the importance of learning more than one language

    and seeing how one language can be used within various countries around the world.

    GLOBAL LITERACY

    Our NetWings Delegations travel with a specific mission to become aware of events, mentalities, and evolving policies within respective countries. Most importantly, our students travel to build an understanding as to how they can apply what they learn within the local communities. Via this avenue of engaging students in international policy, NetWings redefines and diversifies the

    traditional policy expert archetype. Furthermore, our JetSetNetwork of advisors and mentors provide invaluable insights into the countries our students visit.

    DATA VISUALIZATION

    We look to lower the barriers in data exploration by promoting data visualization as a creative means for youth to synthesize data, map relationships, and most importantly, convey concepts in a universal language. We see the value of data visualization as another way to break down barriers of communication and as a way to exchange ideas effectively. The culmination of our story telling, travel experiences, and conference exchanges comes to life via podcasts, case studies, and videos to further engage in technological avenues to connect minds from around the world.

     

    CONNECTING THE DOTS

    Our NetWings Delegates learn to engage in significant conversation while building foundations for friendship and collaboration. We help students create a launchpad of international connections that encourage learning and exploration with a goal to begin connecting people with ideas, ideas with people, and beyond. NetWings students learn to not only connect the dots within the NetWings curriculum but also across a variety of spectrums; a large factor in strengthening their confidence as students, professionals, and individuals
