Who We Are.

 

HOW IT ALL BEGAN. 

 

Project Global Citizen started in 2017 as a partnership between two Australian-based qualified intercultural practitioners, Craig Shim (Alphacrane Intercultural Specialists) and Astrid Hofmann (CTC, Cultural Transition Consulting).

Coming from a commercial background providing coaching and training to corporate and government clients, Astrid and Craig recognised the need for developing future leaders equipped with the 21st century cross-cultural skills necessary for thriving in a truly global marketplace.

Using the same intercultural frameworks provided to their corporate clients, they collaborated to tailor a ground-breaking program for tertiary students. This program has developed into a global movement that creates a foundation for global citizenship with cultural competence.

 
ABOUT THE CO-FOUNDERS.

 

PROFIT FOR PURPOSE

 

The partnership is established under a Profit for Purpose business model, whereby Project Global Citizen sponsors one emerging leader from a refugee, Indigenous or minority background for each cohort of 50 paid participants in our signature 8-week cultural competency program.

Our Vision.

Our vision is for a world of better cultural cohesion.

 

The Project Global Citizen movement contributes to this by creating a solid foundation for global citizenship with cultural competence.

To achieve this vision, we deliver cultural competency programs for tertiary students so they can become global citizens who are employable anywhere in the world.

Through our programs, students develop practical cross-cultural skills to thrive in their studies, feel integrated into society, secure ethical internships and employment, and have a safe and enjoyable experience.
