We will be allocating up to $US100 million over the next 10 years to these initiatives, which aim to teach our 53,000 students to become the change makers of tomorrow.
Nord Anglia Education chief executive Andrew Fitzmaurice said “our most powerful asset is our students”.
“They want to, can and will change the world,” he said.
“The hope for our charitable foundation and a global campaign centre is that it will help them do that, faster, more effectively and more sustainably.”
These initiatives, which will be rolled out over the coming months, will be led by Katie White OBE.
Ms White said the purpose was to arm young people with the tools, resources and training to take their passions and turn them into a powerful force for systemic change.
“We want to encourage and prepare tomorrow’s leaders, managers, opinion formers and entrepreneurs to be able to positively affect change and grow sustainable communities,” Ms White said.
While our schools already engage in social projects, Ms White said a global campaign centre will take those endeavours one step further by leveraging the organisation’s global presence and scale.
“We are in a unique position to do social good and we are keen to maximise that.”
