Global Youth Santa Fe application extended to June 8

Santa Fe Community College will offer the Global Youth Santa Fe program during two five-day camps June 12-16 or June 26-30. High school students may be eligible to earn dual credit. The application deadline has been extended to June 8.

Global Youth Santa Fe teaches Santa Fe’s youth what it means to be citizens of a global community. This is an opportunity for Santa Fe’s youth to meet their international neighbors, hear their journeys and stories, learn about the countries they moved from and become more aware of global issues and their impact on the Santa Fe community. The goal of Global Youth Santa Fe is to make a difference in Santa Fe by promoting tolerance and understanding, and building community. Over the course of a five-day summer camp, participants attend sessions dedicated to various global awareness topics and workshops focused on building intercultural and leadership skills. This integrated form of leadership building ensures participants identify his or her strengths as a potential leader in the community and feel empowered to create change.
