The Global Youth Village takes place in the United States on our Main Campus, located on a 50-acre property in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  The lush woodlands, complete with hiking trails, organic garden, pond and stream provide a peaceful environment.

The Global Youth Village has been home to more than 5,000 participants from 105 countries since 1979.
