Qatar Foundation International Joins the P21 Coalition

“Success in the 21st century requires students to develop attitudes and knowledge to participate in globally interconnected settings,” stated Dr. Helen Soulé, P21 Executive Director. “QFI’s commitment to empower students to become engaged global citizens aligns with P21’s vision for learners to master the skills necessary to thrive in college, career, and life.”

“QFI strives to prepare K-12 students to be multilingual, culturally competent and responsible global citizens in an increasingly interconnected world,” said Maggie Mitchell Salem, QFI Executive Director. “We are thrilled to join P21 as the first member that focuses on the Arab world, namely connecting young people in the Americas and the Middle East through quality language and culture programs. We know that our unique perspective will contribute to the P21 community.”

Maggie Mitchell Salem will represent QFI on P21’s Strategic Council and will work with P21 in the development of new resources for advancing global competence for all learners.
