Throughout the academic year, youth are “matched” to a region in the world, a type of program (e.g., agriculture, business, education, health, environment), and even a specific Peace Corps volunteer. High Achievers, along with GC leaders, engage in discussions with their Peace Corps volunteers across the globe. There are 169 schools in Georgia participate in the World Wise Schools partnership program; however, the High Achievers Program is the currently the only afterschool program to do so.
The Peace Corp component also helps to prepare youth for the spring break and summer camps. Youth use the different regions they learn about during Peace Corp component to create activities and learning activities for youth at the camps. Because the camps are globally themed, the Peace Corp component is essential in providing the foundation for learning.
