About Thinking Beyond Borders

Creating proactive agents of change with the global consciousness and skills to translate their learning into action -- that is what Thinking Beyond Borders does. TBB students graduate with the capacity to envision a new system of international development that is truly proactive. With 60 years and $3 trillion invested in the current system, the global community has more poverty, environmental destruction, and social oppression than ever before. We offer a powerful 8 month international Gap Year program that allows direct interaction with the communities, cultures, and NGOs around the world working to address the world's problems. The media on this channel was created by TBB students as they lived and studied abroad.
