Campfire, Global Nomads Group’s (GNG) flagship program, focuses on virtual storytelling – an interdisciplinary and powerful vehicle for youth to build empathy, self-awareness, and global understanding.

Campfire uses technology to integrate different perspectives and knowledge into the classroom, allowing students to learn about their international peers. By exchanging their personal stories with one another, youth reflect on their families, cultures, communities, and contexts, and see themselves as actors in the world.
