Our Story

We are proud to be the only nonprofit that focuses on elementary world language education.

Global Language Project is the visionary product of Angela Jackson, founder and CEO. Nurtured by her experience traveling for work with multinational companies and living in France, Angela saw firsthand that children abroad were multilingual at an early age, and that their ability to speak another language positioned them more competitively for opportunities in higher education and the global marketplace.

Combining her corporate management experience with the expertise of language educators and public-school staff, Angela developed Global Language Project (GLP).

In 2009, Angela launched GLP's first after-school language program, offering Chinese and Spanish to students at P.S. 368: Hamilton Heights School in Harlem. The program started with 30 third-graders and within one year, expanded to multiple grade levels in several schools throughout New York City. GLP now serves over 800 students in Manhattan and Brooklyn and works both after school, before school, and during the day.

In addition, GLP enhances its language study program through partnerships with the local community and top-level universities, consistently improving its objectives.
