The impact of Global Achievers goes beyond the classroom.

Communities with participating schools are enhanced through international cultural events, Sister City relationships, and increased trade and tourism.

Cultural Events

The flagship event of 1999 was the arrival of the Ayrshire Fiddle Orchestra, a 100-student orchestra from Ayr, Scotland. Several hundred Georgia students, parents, and community members hosted the group and enjoyed one of the four performances they gave across the State.

In June, 2001, the East Ayrshire Schools Brass Band and Choir, a 125-member student band and choir, visited Georgia and entertained audiences in Fayetteville, Greensboro, Eastman, Milledgeville and Cochran.

For more information on these cultural events, visit the Archives section.

Economic Development

Achievers has not only opened the homes of many Georgians to international visitors, but it has also opened economic development doors on both sides of the Atlantic.

From the first delegation of Georgia business, government, and education leaders to visit the UK in 1996, to the arrival of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh in March, 2000, to open a UK-based business in Georgia, opportunities for tourism and trade continue to develop.
