B More Global (BMG) is a nonprofit organization founded on the principle that travel abroad can be a life-changing experience for young people. This shared vision that every student deserves access to high quality programming that emphasizes global competence became the cornerstone of BMG’s mission and vision. The team started taking students abroad in 2007, but given the economic realities that many Baltimore City students face, they recognized that the majority of the student population they were committed to serving would require scholarships to participate. Over time, the team grew the fundraising program to allow more student scholarships each year until finally launching their own independent organization to reach as many schools and students as possible.
BMG participants are provided advocacy mentoring and an inclusive curriculum that embraces cultural diversity. Through our unique scholarship programming, Baltimore City youth learn and apply crucial life skills to earn a full or partial scholarship to travel abroad while simultaneously engaging in BMG's global citizenship curriculum to prepare them for the program's culminating trip abroad. This trip allows participants to immerse themselves in a new culture, to make connections and comparisons across cultures, and to subsequently develop a broader and more informed view on another part of the world.
