World Scholars Program Gala: Dominican Republic

World Scholars Program Mission

The World Scholars Program has as its ultimate goal the development of Village Leadership Academy’s students into global leaders of tomorrow. The Program strives to accomplish this by:

• Expanding our students’ educational foundation through a year long academic and extracurricular exploration of the history and culture of the Community of Focus;

• Establishing an appreciation for and sensitivity toward the culture, history and perspectives of people of the world, with the understanding that “different” does not equal “less than”;

• Challenging our students to explore the commonalities and differences between themselves and other people; and

• Facilitating the development of a comprehensive worldview, critical for global leadership.

This cultural and academic journey culminates in an educational excursion to the Community of Focus. During this international expedition, our students will engage in a cultural exchange with other children of the world, develop new friendships that extend beyond the boundaries of their communities, and acquire first-hand knowledge about the challenges that other communities face. For Village Leadership Academy students, “The World Is the Classroom.
