The Global Youth Village is the best investment you can make in your child’s education. 

Since 1979, 4,200 young people from 105 countries have attended the Global Youth Village (GYV), building skills in cooperative problem solving, cross-cultural communication, global awareness, conflict resolution, environmental action, and leadership.

Participants establish deep friendships with people from cultures vastly different from their own. Approximately 60% of the community is from North America, and the balance from other regions around the globe.   The youth attend high-caliber interactive workshops utilizing the LivingSidebySide® curriculum developed over three decades by Legacy International educators.

Every year, parents report that their child returns home full of energy, inspired and broad minded.  Legacy International has 38 years of experience running high quality summer programs.
