The Global Village lasts just five weeks, but your connection to your fellow participants and the program can last a lifetime.

Many participants report that the Global Experience was a life-changing experience for them. We invite alumni to remain connected with the program and give back by serving as Guides in subsequent years.

Global Village Network

More than 2,100 leaders from 139 countries have completed the Global Village since the program began in 1997. Alumni of the program have formed the Global Village Network to provide:

  • open access to contact information for all Global Village alumni,
  • a place where users can share business and service opportunities,
  • a place where alumni can add and view events on a calendar for face-to-face interaction,
  • and most important, a forum for ideas and dialog that will enrich the lives of others and the world
