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

GVP’s Tribute gala on April 28th was a magical evening! The generosity and commitment of our global village family - both those in attendance as well as those who couldn't make it - to the young women of GVP truly showed. Together we raised $250,000 that is dedicated to our students' continued achievements and to providing them with a high quality education. Thank you!

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

A big thanks to those who supported the Global Village Welcome Walk 2018
as a sponsor, a partner, a fundraiser, or a walker!

On November 3, 2018, more than 250 participants joined GVP for our Welcome Walk from Clarkston to Decatur.
