About Us

World Savvy prepares the next generation of leaders to learn, work and thrive as responsible global citizens. We support systemic change in K-12 education to provide every student in every classroom with the content knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to be leaders and changemakers in their diverse communities, locally and globally.

World Savvy was founded in 2002 by Dana Mortenson and Madiha Murshed in response to a critical need for youth to acquire global knowledge and 21st century skills within the conspicuous absence of global education programs in K-12 education in the United States. Since that time, we have grown from serving 90 students and 20 teachers in our first year, to reaching more than 655,000 youth and 4,500 teachers from three offices nationally: San Francisco, Minneapolis-St.Paul, and New York.
