There is only about two weeks until the official start of summer; and less than 6 weeks until the first group of students begin to arrive at the Global Youth Village!


This year, we are expecting a diverse group of students from across the United States and abroad.  Students have equally diverse interests, hobbies, family backgrounds and education/ professional goals.  There is one thing all these students have in common – they are about the have the BEST summer of their lives!  Here is just a sampling of some of the participants you’ll find at GYV 2014:
