About the Region
Welcome to the North American Region page
GLOBE community members in the North America Region represent Canada and the United States.
In the U.S., Nonprofit or governmental organizations, whose priorities focus on support of student inquiry and research about the environment, are invited to become U.S. GLOBE Partners. In addition, businesses and organizations whose corporate mission is to invest in successful educational outcomes of students and the community at large are also welcome to become U.S. GLOBE Partners. Each U.S. GLOBE Partner must have a formal affiliation with an institution of higher education, a school district, a State Department of Education, or recognized informal education organization (501C3) such as STEM learning centers, museums and foundations, leading to sustainable implementation of GLOBE in their community.
This basic criterion is applied in the consideration of all U.S. Partners in all states and U.S. territories. Potential Partners must also demonstrate, in their application, the capacity to recruit, train, mentor and conduct follow-up activities with the GLOBE teachers in the identified service area, with these efforts focused on capacity-building, programmatic sustainability and support of student inquiry and research within GLOBE Program policies and guidelines.
