Global Minds
Youth Fellows | United States | Community Link

Peyton started the Global Minds Initiative when she was a freshman in high school, as a way to create more welcoming and inclusive high schools for all. Global Minds addresses disparities in education caused by ethnicity-driven discrimination against immigrants and nonnative English speakers in schools. Global Minds bridges native English speaking and newcomer youth through youth-led after-school programming. It gives young people agency to disrupt and change trends by building bridges to understanding.
