Global Village Welcome Walk

Our annual Welcome Walk (previously called the Connecting Communities Walk) is a tradition at GVP that celebrates our community and raises our home as a place of inclusion, belonging, and joy. Traditionally, Welcome Walk participants walk the 4.8 miles from Clarkston, where our students live, to GVP in downtown Decatur. In 2019, over 300 participants showed their support for GVP at the Welcome Walk!

If you represent a business interesting in sponsoring the 2021 Welcome Walk, 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.

Authors' Teas

One of our favorite GVP traditions is our quarterly Authors’ Teas, where students showcase their learning in a performance for community members. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have transitioned to hosting our Authors' Teas virtually to bring our community together and celebrate our students in a safe, socially distanced manner. Join our mailing list or follow us on Facebook or Instagram to stay up-to-date on all our upcoming Authors' Teas!

Tribute to Education

Held every spring, our annual gala Tribute to Education is an opportunity to contribute to the work and impact of Global Village Project while enjoying a lively, fun-filled evening. Featuring dinner and cocktails, a live auction and paddle raise, a performance by the GVP chorus, and more, you don't want to miss this event! During Tribute to Education 2019, we raised $240,000 through the generosity of our global village family to support the educational journeys of GVP students!
