- Introduce the children of Northwest Florida to the languages, customs and cultures of people around the world – and in the process improve basic skills.
- Increase student and community interest and awareness in learning about other cultures.
- Develop a future workforce capable of successfully contributing to multinational organizations and local companies that trade internationally.
- Enable citizens to develop a holistic world view – encouraging critical thinking, celebrating international diversity, and increasing global awareness.
