  • Why we #NetWings

    Getting to know us in 4 very important questions

    Who are we and what issue do we address?

    NetWings is a global non profit organization. We are committed to addressing the increasingly wide social capital gap that is prevalent within diverse, underrepresented youth communities around the world.

    How do we solve this issue?

    We address the social capital gap by traveling with diverse student delegations around the world, championing social mobility and global exposure through our tailored global curriculum and programming. Through this work, we help youths around the world to build perspective, develop heightened cultural understanding, and strengthen global workforce competencies as active global citizens.

    Why does this make a difference?

    Our motivation is that this collective engagement of early exposure experiences will equip youths with the skills needed to succeed in an increasingly global world. Through our work, we hope to democratize the participation of youths working in several professional arenas that are often considered 'too complex' for youths to engage in.

    How do we balance being global and local?

    We empower our students to think global, act local by equipping them with the international experiences and networks to nurture their learning in their respective communities. We aim for this connection to serve as an impetus for youths around the world to work together to create local solutions to shared global issues.

  • 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 youths, their zip code defines their perspective. This  limitation of environment oftentimes serves as the biggest barrier in understanding the world.

    At NetWings, we view mobility, through international travel, as a tool to experience exposure. By Introducing youth to international travel at a young age, we help them develop an understanding of new places, people, and mindsets.

    Cultural Diplomacy

    Our NetWings Delegates travel with a specific mission to become aware of events, mentalities, and evolving policies of the countries they visit. This experience empowers students to develop the soft skills needed to exchange ideas, strengthen relationships, and promote diverse cooperation in various multicultural environments. Via this avenue of engaging students in international policy, NetWings redefines and diversifies the traditional policy expert archetype. Welcome to a new age of Cultural Diplomats and Policy experts!

    Social Capital

    Building international networks at a young age and participating in our tailored programs provides our NetWings Delegates the bridges needed to begin building interpersonal relationships, career contacts, and community sponsors.

    Data Synthesis

    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
