All about membership
This is a family place. For all generations, from your toddler to your grandparents.
Mothers and fathers, grand-, step- or foster parents can join; single parents are welcome.
We welcome all open and global minded parents regardless of social or ethnic background, nationality or creed. Membership is always awarded to the entire family.
Global Native families establish partnerships through sincere and open communication.
Here's their bundle of common denominators: Education opportunities and language skills,
open dialogue across national and cultural borders, fair play and genuine tolerance,
a shared passion for science and democratic thinking, the love for people and planet.
What we do here is slow networking. This takes time and consideration, dedication
and commitment. In return, it only takes a small budget to multiply your options.
Kids take two decades to grow up, so we can take our time.
There is no advertising, there are no commercial interests. What we do is exclusively funded by membership fees.
Within the community, the Euro is the strongest and most frequently used currency.
The annual fee for 2023 is set at € 264, unchanged from 2022. The equivalents
in USD and GBP are frequently adjusted here to reflect current exchange rates.
Membership fees include 20% VAT.
You'll find this quite relevant information, too:
There’s a guarantee ...
There's a purpose ...
There is the need for patience:
There is commitment ...
Sometimes circumstances change. You may find that your reasons for membership are no longer valid or that you cannot establish a meaningful partnership with a suitable family. This happens very rarely, but it is of course possible.
If this is the case, we return the aliquot part of your annual fee. All we ask is that you take half an hour of your precious time to write down why you want to terminate your membership and give at least one serious suggestion of potential improvement.
Whatever your reason may be: of course we want to know about it, but we shall never argue the point. Whatever sum remains unused at this point of time will be transferred back to you within a week. There is no handling fee and there are no catches.
50% of all membership fees go into grants for the community. The other 50% go into running the organization, school & research projects and international scientific cooperation.
Membership fees drive our programs and finance the support we offer to make global citizenship and education available to all. Find out more in the opportunity kitchen agenda.
There has always been a minimum time span of six to eight weeks for the application process. This is part of the commitment filter. However, with the "free from xenophobia"
factor getting more relevant by the day, current processing time may take up to 12 weeks.
We do not offer free trials.
The great wealth of information we offer you here covers every aspect of The Global Natives Club's work and potential. We feel it is sufficient to help you decide if this is for you and enough to judge if what you expect and what is expected of you will tally up, both for you and for your family. Once you have taken a deliberate decision to join there is a call for considerable commitment on both sides, the kind of commitment we don't associate with freebies.
