Global Scribes™ is a nonprofit organization which fosters global unity by connecting youth to build cultural understanding and worldwide community through the beauty and the power of the written word and creative expression.watch the Introduction
Create. Connect. Collaborate. Youth, ages 8-25, are invited to share their stories through creative writing, through visual arts, and through the collaboration of team passions. Global Scribes facilitates healthy, culturally-enriching relationships within an environment free from politics, religion, causes, and socio-demographic segregation. We focus on global journeys through the written word, visual & audio arts, dynamic interaction, and consistent interplay across multiple virtual platforms– Education, Focused Passion, Fun and Play Intertwined. For Youth, By Youth–working together to break through barriers and build a world of friendship where solid global foundations may form.
Youth participation as an individual, within a classroom, organization or club environment follows a 4-step process. 1/ Write. Each month global scribes write creative stories inspired by a monthly ‘Spark’ word chosen by one of our schools, organizations or youth. 2/ Video Selfie video, reading, storytelling, acting out– Step 1 & Step 2 are uploaded to GS's YouTube Channel. 3/ Film. Every Global Scribes member shares, on an annual or semi-annual basis, their unique, personal, version of THE LIFE I LEAD–a 3-7 minute short film. (we will show you how to make it!) And, 4/ Teams of Passion. Each youth selects his/her GS Team. What is their passion? What have they dreamed of doing, studying, exploring? Art? Music? Architecture? Sports? Writing? Science/Nature? Technology? Food? Broadcast Journalism? Photography? Theater?
One of the most impactful elements of Global Scribes™ is our philosophy that there is no right or wrong, good or bad, in one's expression of self – you are not being critiqued on your 'Letter to the World' *. Exchanging personal narratives is the foundation of our global community. We invite all people to contribute within the framework of our mission – with authenticity, integrity, spirit, respect, courage, creativity, kindness, grace and gratitude – to learn from one another the unique and similar aspects of our global cultures. All of this within a supportive environment brimming with other global youth excited to meet new friends and explore new cultures.
We facilitate communicating across all socio-demographic groups without reference to religion or politics with an interactive virtual network designed to focus on global journeys through the written word, dynamic interaction and consistent interplay, encouraging global scribes to embrace their unique qualities through authentic fellowship, thereby empowering one another to strive for excellence, to reach for personal significance and to consciously choose to be extraordinary.
