Event description

Description

Each year, Village Leadership Academy's World Scholars Program (WSP) provides students with an innovative year-long, targeted course of study that helps foster cross-cultural learning and understanding, an appreciation of global community, and an in-depth exploration of the social, political, economic, and cultural histories of a specific Community of Focus. By participating in the World Scholars Program, students not only deepen their educational foundation, but also broaden their world-perspective(s) through international travel. This year, VLA WSP students will travel to Costa Rica as the culmination of their research and study within the class.

It is our goal to send 25 WSP students on a curated educational expedition to Costa Rica this June. During this life-changing (and affirming) journey, our students will complete a service-learning project, engage in critical cultural exchange, visit multiple regions of Costa Rica, acquire first-hand knowledge about the challenges facing global communities, and develop relationships that extend beyond borders.

The VLA community needs your support to help make our educational expedition to Costa Rica a reality. You are cordially invited to the 2018 World Scholars Program & Scholarship Gala. Please join us on Saturday, April 28th, 2018, at The Metropolitan Club in the Willis Tower for an evening of fun, food, and philanthropy!

Together, we can help prepare tomorrow's global leaders today.
