"It was by far the most I have ever learned in such a short amount of time. I would not want to go through life not being able to experience this."—Savanah

The Pangaea Project empowers low-income high school students from Portland to become globally aware local leaders by engaging in eight-month long programs that combine both local and international service-learning projects. Throughout the three phases of the program- World CLASS training, International Inspiration, and Local Leadership, students experience Pangaea's three Core Educational Elements: grassroots leadership, social justice, and the development of a global perspective.  Participants are immersed in both local and global issues of social justice and human rights, are exposed to inspiring community leaders at home and abroad who are working at the grassroots level to enact positive social change, and are given the opportunity to gain a global perspective on local justice issues. Pangaea's unique model of education provides once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for low-income students to learn about solidarity, human rights, teamwork and community organizing.
