Global Gateway is a partnership of media, educator, and student resources that seeks to engage the public, especially young people, in the international issues that will shape our future. This initiative brings reporters and the issues they cover into schools across the country through direct classroom visits and weblog forums between reporters and students. Global Gateway facilitates teacher-peer learning through forums where educators can share lesson plans and additional resources to make use of Pulitzer Center journalism projects in their classrooms. Global Gateway is supported in part by grants from the MAC AIDS Fund and from the Educational Foundation of America.

Select schools across the country will be chosen as partners in the Global Gateway on HIV-AIDS in the Caribbean initiative. To learn more, visit: http://www.pulitzercenter.org/globalgateway
