About Global High School

 

The GHS Mission: Catholic Relief Services (CRS) recognizes the vital role youth can play in changing our world for the better. Motivated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the CRS Global High School Program provides opportunities for Catholic secondary schools to join with CRS to educate young people about Catholic social teaching and mobilize them to advocate in response to the issues that most urgently effect people experiencing vulnerability and poverty around the world.

Our Goals: Through the vehicles of prayer, learning, action and giving, the CRS Global High School Program is created to:

  • Place the resources of CRS at Catholic secondary schools’ disposal so as to assist schools in forming internationally aware and globally responsive students who live their faith in solidarity with their brothers and sisters around the world. 
  • Enhance Catholic identity through the promotion of Catholic social teaching. 
  • Build relationships with schools that are based on trust, adaptability, mutuality, and foster cooperative unity. 
  • Recognize the outstanding existing work towards global solidarity education already being done in Catholic high schools. 
  • Resource existing programs that educate students and allow them to advocate for social justice from a global perspective. 
  • Help Catholic high schools build their competitive advantage by providing opportunities for global experience.
