GCE-US is guided by the right of all children to have access to a quality education. To work toward that goal, GCE-US, in coordination with its 80+ coalition members, creates advocacy and policy strategies to influence and educate policy makers and the US public, provides and supports opportunities for youth to act on behalf of education for all and increase public support for universal quality education.
Youth Advocacy Training
The GCE-US Youth Advocacy Training is a training program that both equips students and young professionals with information about education for all and trains them to be local and national advocates.
GCE-US recognizes that some stories need to be told by the owners of those stories and brings education advocates from other countries, particularly the Global South, to share their experiences and struggles with accessing the right to education.
