The American Forum for Global Education (AFGE) was a private, not-for-profit organization, founded in 1970 to promote the education of American youth for responsible citizenship in an increasingly interdependent and rapidly changing world. For more than thirty years, AFGE was nationally recognized for providing leadership and assistance to school systems, state departments of education, and colleges and universities by initiating hundreds of programs for both students and teachers. It also developed educational materials and publications focused on giving young Americans a global perspective as an accepted part of their educational background. It was the goal of AFGE that young Americans achieve an understanding of global issues, of cultural differences and similarities, and of the connections which exist in their daily lives between their actions - and those of their country - and others taking place in all parts of the globe, from East to West and North to South.
