Expanding Santa Fe Youth’s International Horizons

FREE information sessions for high school students and their parents.

Saturday, May 14, 9 to 9:30 a.m. and 4:15 to 4:45 p.m. in the SFCC Board Room (Room 223) 

Global Youth Santa Fe teaches Santa Fe’s youth what it means to be citizens of a global community. Our goal is to make a difference in Santa Fe by providing participants access to international experts and training in leadership skills.

Over the course of a six-day summer camp, Global Youth Santa Fe participants attend sessions dedicated to various global awareness topics and workshops focused on building intercultural and leadership skills. Participants meet with established leaders in international affairs and understand how global issues impact the Santa Fe community. This integrated form of leadership building ensures that each youth identifies his or her strengths as a potential leader in the community and feels empowered to create change.
