For Parents

Global Visionaries is like a family. Your youth will experience an environment that fosters a sense of belonging among a fun and diverse crowd of people. And so will you!

As a parent of a GV participant, we encourage you to be part of the family. There are some required meetings for parents, but also some exciting, but optional ways to be involved. Some highlights include:

To build truly empathetic leaders, Global Visionaries recruits a deliberately diverse group of youth, spanning all socioeconomic backgrounds, to participate in our program. To ensure that our program is affordable for all of our participants, we offer scholarships. We do not overcharge more affluent families for this need. Instead, these scholarships are made possible through the money raised at our annual fundraising events.

We have many opportunities for parents/guardians to volunteer. Examples of these volunteer opportunities include: procuring food for our program retreats, donating wine or procuring items for our annual Auction, or being a Breakfast Champion at our Breakfast of Visionaries.

If you are interested in volunteering, send us an email.
