Thank you for your interest in sponsoring the Annual Global Village Welcome Walk!

See Sponsorship levels and benefits.

Our Annual Global Village Welcome Walk provides our community -including students, families, volunteers, donors, partner organizations, and friends - the opportunity to come together to celebrate diversity and our future leaders. We walk together from Clarkston, where most of our students and their families live, to our school in Decatur. This 4.3 mile walk is our yearly opportunity to raise the visibility of our local community as a place of welcoming and share that with all of Atlanta - hope you'll join us!

By sponsoring the walk, your business or organization can reach:
  • Not only the 250+ participants, but all those who see your name on the event t-shirt and on signage at the festivities;
  • 1700 people through GVP’s monthly newsletter;
  • 2000+ followers of GVP’s social media outlets;
  • Countless others through word of mouth.
