By the end of Global Youth Village, your people skills will have expanded.

LivingSidebySide® is a peacebuilding and tolerance curriculum developed over three decades by Legacy International educators.  The curriculum, which teaches communication, cultural competency, leadership and problem solving skills, is the backbone of the Global Youth Village experience.

Guided by professional facilitators, students explore issues related to interpersonal communication, cultural norms, stereotypes, bullying, conflict and war, and leadership styles.

All activities are experiential, allowing for deep and lasting learning.
