What is the GEA Project?

The Global Economic Awareness Project is a US-based nonprofit. Our vision is to foster economic literacy worldwide. We select high-achieving young professionals and university students to lead free workshops for students in underserved communities.

Our GEA Workshop addresses critical real-world economic issues through a proprietary hypothesis-based problem solving approach. Our workshop enables students to think critically about important economic questions that affect their everyday lives in an interactive and engaging way.

The GEA Workshops have helped hundreds of students around the world to boost their academic performance and jumpstart a successful career. We have built a strong global network that supports highly motivated youth through significant milestones of their academic and professional development such as applying to university or securing their first job.
