Seeking dynamic "practical idealists" to join our summer team, working with international teens.

Each summer since 1979, a dynamic community is created at the Global Youth Village that emphasizes experiential learning and challenges young people to turn intercultural theory into practical action. This year 50+ teens and staff from around the world will participate. 2018 highlights include youth leaders from Egypt.


Everyone experiences conflict; what one chooses to do with it is the key. In GYV’s Dialogue Workshop teens learn practical peace-building skills and how to respond productively to conflict and prejudice. They learn how to lead discussions and have constructive conversations with people holding differing viewpoints. They gain tools to deal with anger – their own and others, while developing listening skills, and mastering cross-cultural communications. 


The Dialogue Workshop, coupled with cultural programming, sports and arts, alongside the cooperative living setting in this residential camp help participants learn to respect differences and discover similarities that transcend cultural, religious, and political barriers.

Dates: June 26– July 23, 2018 (Select positions require early start dates. Select staff may work thru August 4.)

MOST positions are residential and full time. Housing and meals provided along with a modest salary.
