Full-Circle Learning Mission

Full-Circle Learning (FCL) helps young people embrace their role as the change agents and humanitarians of their generation. Its educational programs integrate and expand students' character strengths, academic excellence, artistic capacities and peacemaking skills in service to the global human family.

FCL serves communities around the world, upon request, by: 


  • Training and mentoring teachers, with an emphasis on customization for local standards, needs and customs;

  • Providing the curriculum, music and ancillary materials to support sites, as needed;

  • Liaising with collaborating schools to foster global classroom relationships, to help students honor the wisdom of others and see local issues through a global lens.
