[CANCELED] Tribute to Education 2020

In our commitment to protect the wellbeing of our community and loved ones, we have made the decision not to hold our April 19th gala Tribute to Education. Please visit the Tribute to Education event page for a list of FAQs.


Authors' Teas

One of our favorite GVP traditions is our quarterly Authors’ Teas, where students showcase their learning in a performance for community members. We invite the public to join us at these events, held on Friday afternoons throughout the school year.

Our 2019-2020 Authors' Teas dates are September 27th, December 6th, March 6th, and May 1st. RSVP for our next Authors' Tea.

Global Village Welcome Walk

Our annual fall Welcome Walk (previously called the Connecting Communities Walk) is a tradition at GVP that celebrates community building and friend raising. Welcome Walk participants walk the 4.8 miles from Clarkston, where our students live, to GVP in downtown Decatur.

The Welcome Walk is a fun-filled morning for meeting new and old friends, learning about GVP, and sharing music and food… with a bit of exercise thrown in! The event is growing each year, with more than 300 participants at our November 2019 walk.

If you represent a business interesting in sponsoring the next Welcome Walk in 2020, please contact Kate Mull at for more information.

On November 2, 2019, more than 300 participants joined GVP for our Welcome Walk from Clarkston to Decatur.
