The Global Economic Awareness Project is a US-based international social impact organization with the mission of fostering economic literacy and responsible business leadership worldwide.
We select outstanding young professionals from prestigious academic and professional organizations around the world and train them to become GEA Leaders. As GEA Leaders, young professionals are trained as responsible business leaders, and prepare to impact underserved student communities by leading GEA Student Workshops. Through the GEA Leader experience, young professionals develop outstanding leadership skills while empowering the community.
Our Student Workshops help students develop practical critical thinking and soft skills by addressing relevant real-world economic and business issues through our engaging and interactive teaching method. Learnings from our workshops empower our students to pursue ambitious personal goals.
