Core2Globe is an Atlanta-based organization with a simple mission to improve the world. Simple huh? It really is when you take small bites. We are focused on building better world citizens that are more politically aware, more socially conscious, and more connected. When we say connected we aren’t talking about smartphones and wi-fi we are talking about connected through hugs, smiles, hard work and service.
We provide global experiential learning opportunities for the young, old and everyone in between. We believe in exploring the world and engaging in real-world opportunities for cultural exchanges, information sharing, and relationship building.
In the coming years, you can look forward to seeing our logo in some of the coolest places on earth that you might not see pop up on your Instagram feed, and while they may not be the best-kept secrets around you’ll probably find more 5 star smiles than 5-star hotels.
It’s our hope that you will join us on this mission of growth and goodwill. Please complete our form below so that we can let you know when it’s wheels up!
