International Partnerships Formalized with Global Talent Mentoring

Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing has secured offi­cial part­ner­ships with insti­tu­tions in STEMM in more than thir­ty coun­tries to date. Such part­ner­ships pro­vide Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing with essen­tial sup­port through access to their net­works of top-tier stu­dents and experts who will par­tic­i­pate as mentees and men­tors. Among the signees are the Illi­nois Math­e­mat­ics and Sci­ence Acad­e­my (IMSA), one of the best pub­lic high schools in the Unit­ed States, the Hong Kong Acad­e­my for Gift­ed Edu­ca­tion, a non-gov­ern­men­tal orga­ni­za­tion offer­ing learn­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for high­ly tal­ent­ed youth, and the Bul­gar­i­an Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion and Sci­ence. More part­ner­ships will fol­low, which will fur­ther expand the already inter­na­tion­al­ly diverse list of part­ner institutions.

Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing is a flag­ship offer­ing of the future World Gift­ed­ness Cen­ter, a larg­er under­tak­ing that will be an online hub for evi­dence-based gift­ed edu­ca­tion and research. When it opens its vir­tu­al doors in late 2021, the World Gift­ed­ness Cen­ter will facil­i­tate stronger links between research and prac­tice by pro­vid­ing instruc­tion­al mate­ri­als, host­ing train­ing sem­i­nars, pub­lish­ing a sci­en­tif­ic jour­nal, and estab­lish­ing an inter­na­tion­al accred­i­ta­tion sys­tem for gift­ed edu­ca­tion and research. The World Gift­ed­ness Cen­ter is a project by the UNESCO-rec­og­nized Ham­dan Bin Rashid Al Mak­toum Foun­da­tion for Dis­tin­guished Aca­d­e­m­ic Per­for­mance.
