Youth http://www.tigweb.org The TakingITGlobal Online Community's focus is on youth: empowering them to understand and act on the world's greatest challenges to enable them to be active agents of change in their local and global communities. To help connect youth to information and opportunities to make these positive changes, the online community hosts discussion boards, online petitions to allow them to take action on issues that matter to them, and databases of opportunities showcasing ways for them to get directly involved in an issue. Educators http://www.tiged.org TakingITGlobal for Educators (TIGed) is a resource and community for educators seeking to bring together global perspectives into their classrooms. By utilizing technology to expand learning experiences for students, TIGed focuses on the 21st century skills in the classroom. TIGed's work is framed around the three key values of global citizenship, student voice, and environmental stewardship, offering professional development, programming, and online resources to educators around the world. Organisations http://orgs.tigweb.org TakingITGlobal provides a platform for youth-focused organisations and networks to advance their work for positive social change. We provide a suite of action tools including: knowledge sharing resources, event listings through interactive visual maps like YouthMovements and Initiatives, tools to help organisations find funding opportunities and connect with potential volunteers, as well as toolkits that help connect individuals and organisations with other like-minded organisations who help to drive social change around the world. 8 TakingITGlobal Annual Report 2012
