Tribute to Education 2019: Raising our Voices, Then & Now

Each year we celebrate the amazing young women of GVP at our spring gala. The event includes dinner and drinks, a live auction and paddle raise, and performances by the GVP Ensemble. We expect 250 attendees to join us at Tribute to Education this year - most attendees are friends from in-town communities including Decatur, Druid Hills, Midtown, and Buckhead. The event remains a key component of our school’s continued services and ongoing development. Every dollar generated by Tribute to Education helps us provide life-changing educational opportunities to refugee young women. With your support, we know that we can exceed our 2019 goal of $280,000!

You can now purchase a sponsorship, table, or tickets for Tribute to Education 2019!

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 2018-2019 Authors' Teas dates are September 21st, December 7th, March 1st, and May 18th. RSVP for our next Tea on December 7th.

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 250 participants and 30 sponsors at our November 2018 walk.

If you represent a business interesting in sponsoring the next Welcome Walk in 2019, we are happy to provide you with a sponsorship packet for more information. Please contact Erin Alred at
