Call to Action!
​​The Need: The growth of Dual Language Immersion Programs in Georgi
and the introduction of Georgia’s new Seal of Biliteracy and the subsequent need to focus on building proficiencies has led to a desperate need to both better understand the effectiveness and results of the DLI model and to support increased quality professional development opportunities for world language teachers across Georgia.

The Response:  To meet the need, we are raising funds to provide much needed support for dual language immersion programs as well as critical quality professional development opportunities for world language educators statewide!  We are excited to partner with the Georgia Foundation for Public Education in this important work!

Mission

For our students to succeed in a global economy, they will need to possess a new set of skills that were not required for the success of prior generations of Americans.  Regional expertise, cross-cultural competence, and advanced language proficiency are no longer skills reserved only for those who plan for a career overseas - they are skills that will enhance any career field, encourage international investment to our state, and develop a workforce that is successful in working on diverse international teams to collaborate and solve global problems.  Developing international perspective and advanced language proficiency, particularly as this relates to college and career readiness, will ensure our nation's security and will support our statewide and regional economic development goals.  Business leaders across Georgia and the Southeast have made it clear that these skills are the fastest route to success in a global job market and that they provide a competitive advantage that moves an applicant's resume to the top of the pile.
