The Objective of JGET

Our objective at the Journal of Global Engagement and Transformation (JGET) is manifold:

  • To highlight and share the transformative work of practitioners across various disciplines that contribute to safer communities and improved lives.
  • To serve as a conduit for scholars, facilitating the translation of their academic work into practical, real-world solutions that foster safety and transformation in communities.
  • To advocate for and advance the social and emotional development of individuals at all life stages, from children and youth to adults.

The Aspiration of JGET

JGET aspires to transcend disciplinary confines, fostering a broader transdisciplinary discourse on the social and emotional factors shaping an individual’s life trajectory. In an era marked by hybridity, diaspora, border-crossing, intercultural communication, multilingualism, and globalization, such a conversation is critical.

Our dedicated editorial team at JGET is committed to publishing culturally responsive, innovative, practical, and applicable interventions based on a systems approach. We welcome conceptual manuscripts, professional commentary, and scholarship that can be translated into real-world applications. Our focus is on promoting the relationship skills, social connectedness, emotional, behavioral, academic, college, and career development of children, youth, and adults in a rapidly changing world.
