Santa Fe Community College Offers Global Youth Santa Fe Program

SANTA FE, NM – Santa Fe Community College will offer the Global Youth Santa Fe program during a six-day camp June 13-18. High school students may be eligible to earn college credit. Learn more about this program during one of two parent and student information sessions Sat., May 14 from 9 to 9:30 a.m. or 4:15 to 4:45 p.m. Both sessions will be presented in room 223, the Boardroom, on campus, 6401 Richards Ave. The application deadline is May 23.

Global Youth Santa Fe teaches Santa Fe’s youth what it means to be citizens of a global community. Over the course of the 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/her strengths as a potential leader in the community and feels empowered to create change, and cultivates a network of community youth leaders.
