MyCOE Global Connections and Exchange Program

The MyCOE GCE program connected high school students in the U.S. with their peers abroad in Bolivia, Ghana, Nicaragua and the Philippines through virtual online meetings. These meetings were arranged through online video conferences, online phone calls and chat rooms. Students also developed youth-led sustainable development projects around themes of climate change, food security, green economy, hazards and vulnerability and youth leadership, and presented these projects during the MyCOE Digital Video Conference, held during the 2013 AAG Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, California.


Supporting Basic Math and Science Education in Muslim Southeast Asia

The MyCOE program provided travel support to attend a workshop in Davao City, May 2008, as well as GPS equipment to 35 teacher participants competitively selected from more than 200 applicants in the Muslim region of Mindanao, Philippines. Capacy building and materials broached topics such as natural disasters (earthquakes, tsunamis and flooding), ecoregions, environmental pollution, collection of field data, watershed management, climate change, health and others.

What participants have said


The most excellent seminar I've ever had in my teaching profession.

Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity and rest assured that the knowledge and expertise you shared will be extended to my co‐teachers at the school where I am teaching. More Power MYCOE!

I hope more teachers will be reached of your noble mission! I'm really very grateful, before GIS education seemed like a dream, now, its in my hand. MABUHAY
