Authors' Teas


As an all-female learning community, Global Village Project empowers young women to learn, take risks, and build their confidence and abilities as they pursue their dreams.

Our Authors’ Teas, held 3-4 times each school year, have always been a special time for students to share and showcase their learning as GVP's friends gather around them in a community of support.

Authors’ Teas began with some of GVP’s earliest students, a group of Afghani young women, who would prepare traditional tea to serve to guests before reading excerpts of their written work from literacy classes.

Today’s Authors’ Teas have grown quite a bit since the early days, although we have kept up the tradition of offering tea! Each Authors' Tea includes a short program followed by a reception. Our student 'authors' work very hard with our faculty to plan and produce a program that highlights their accomplishments as well as GVP’s unique and innovative approaches to teaching and learning. The reception provides an opportunity for guests to mingle and converse with students, faculty, volunteers and friends as we continue to grow our global village.

Authors’ Teas are open to the public, and we encourage you to bring your friends for these special events. We ask that you RSVP here. Please contact Erin Alred at or at (404) 371-0107 if you have any questions.
