Schools Across Borders is a non-governmental organisation registered in Ireland with charitable status. Founded in 2002 it has a proven track record in providing Development Education / Global Citizenship Education programmes for schools.
We believe in the power of young people to reach across borders and to develop mutual understanding, cooperation and collective actions with their peers.
We believe that school and the curriculum provide real and effective opportunities for young people to learn from, with and for each other across borders.
Our student-centred programme promotes exchanges between participant school and youth groups on the basis of transferable and reciprocal learning.
Our programme is integrated into post-primary school curricula and modules in the Republic of Ireland. It can also be adapted to suit curricula in other countries.
