We strive to provide opportunities for learning, capacity-building, cross-cultural awareness, and self-development through the use of Information and Communication Technologies.
TakingITGlobal is uniquely positioned at the centre of key global trends: The demographic force of young people, the power of the Internet, and the increasingly global nature of the challenges the world is facing. Our aims include:
- Strengthening the capacity of young people as leaders and stakeholders
- Fostering cross-cultural dialogue and understanding
- Increasing awareness and involvement in global issues
TakingITGlobal is an international organization - led by youth and empowered by technology. TakingITGlobal connects youth around the world to find inspiration, information and get involved in improving their local and global communities.
Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, with a growing worldwide presence, the organization's flagship program’ TakingITGlobal.org, serves as the most popular online community for young people interested in connecting across cultures and making a difference, with hundreds of thousands of visitors each month.
TakingITGlobal works with global partners – from UN agencies, to major companies, and especially youth organizations – to build the capacity of youth for development, artistic and media expression, make education more engaging, and involve young people in global decision-making.
