The Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI) is an international non-profit organization that promotes innovative solutions to education challenges and inspires action that creates positive,sustainable futures for children and youth worldwide.

ACEI's newest program, Global Schools First (GSF), provides a school assessment and recognition opportunity for primary/elementary schools committed to educating their learners as global citizens. Using the GSF assessment framework, school leaders and teachers can evaluate their progress on integrating global citizenship education throughout their whole school. 

ACEI is currently looking for primary/elementary schools to join the Global Schools First pilot program. Email [email protected] with a brief description of your school and its approach to global citizenship education. ACEI will select a limited number of schools to participate!
