Global Village Project

GVP serves refugee students who live in Clarkston, Georgia, one of the most diverse cities in the nation. As a nonprofit middle school, GVP provides a full-day, tuition-free academic program that serves 40-50 refugee learners from all over the world. The typical GVP student has been in the U.S. for less than three years and has missed an average of three years of school (and up to six).

GVP centers the needs and experiences of young women who face multiple barriers to their education - as refugees, newcomers, English Language Learners, and more. Our transformative educational model is designed to not only meet the needs of refugee young women, but also amplify the strengths, skills, and voices they bring to our learning community. Through the foundation they acquire at GVP, refugee girls gain the tools and support they need to become highly successful students and empowered citizens.
