Stocks in this article: EPAX

SPOKANE, Wash., Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- People to People Ambassador Programs, the leader in global educational travel experiences, joins the Partnership for 21 st Century Skills, or P21, a coalition that brings together the business community, education leaders and policy makers to position 21 st century readiness at the center of US K-12 education.  

People to People Ambassador Programs brings its 50-year legacy in enhancing cultural literacy through study abroad to a coalition that is striving to support educators on developing 21st century learning practices, including global awareness.  P21 members include 27 companies, associations and nonprofits, and 19 states.

"With the globalization of the world economy, having young people who are culturally aware and able to conduct themselves effectively with people of other countries is essential to 21st century learning," said Stephan Turnipseed, Chair of P21 and President of LEGO Education North America. "We welcome People to People Ambassador Programs and the unique perspective and expertise they bring as a P21 member to our organization's mission to further 21st century learning opportunities for all students."

People to People executives will serve on P21's strategic council and participate in both national and state initiatives that will assist educators and policymakers in forming curriculum to ensure that all students are prepared for success in college, career and citizenship.

"We are excited and honored to bring our positioning as an educational travel leader to the conversation with an esteemed roster of national thought leaders and companies in the education and youth market spaces," said Bill Bland, Director, Educational Alliances for People to People Ambassador Programs. "The growing corporate support for P21 will undoubtedly accelerate the organization's influence to more states and at the national level."

This partnership is a natural fit, as People to People's mission to create global ready children aids P21's mission of bridging the gap between the knowledge of current education in the classroom and demands in the 21st Century workplace and community.
