KM Global focuses on bringing self-directed young people together in a rigorous and non-traditional way, igniting and promoting their passion for learning.   Instead of studying textbooks in a typical classroom setting, students are learning through experience and inquiry based on their interests and goals for the future.  Through this model we are preparing students to contribute positively to their local, national, and global communities.

The Delafield Area Chamber has endorsed this program and will work along side KM Global rep. Erica Bardon as an attempt is made to match student to business owner for a valuable experience for trainor and trainee.
