Global Youth Village

IYLP-Follow-on-ProjectsFind out what’s happening each summer when international teens meet with US youth and engage in workshops for peacebuilding,   cross cultural awareness,  dialogue,  leadership skill building,  cultural arts and global music  at Legacy’s Global Youth Village.

Since 1979 Legacy has hosted GYV on its 80 acre campus, fostering dialogue, friendship, and cultural awareness between youth from over 107 countries around the world.

The Global Youth Village offers teen summer programs that focus on intercultural communication and community action. Morning workshops focus on living your life as a peace builder, on living your life as a social innovator and on living your life as a global citizen. The youth delve into topics and explore customs, traditions and hardships of their peers around the world. Participants develop a deeper sense of self-confidence and an expansive world view which stays with them for life.
