This summer Concordia Language Villages safely welcomed back more than 1,000 villagers and 350 seasonal staff members to our flagship residential programs, and did so responsibly. Even in the midst of a pandemic, when so much was still uncertain, youth from around the country traveled to Northern Minnesota to Live the Language at the Villages. In the end it literally took a Village to pull this off, and with your help, we did it! We are reaching out now to ask for your continued support in helping our villagers to learn, grow and thrive with Concordia Language Villages in 2022 as we rebuild back to full strength.
There are many challenges that lie ahead for Concordia Language Villages in the coming year. We remain vigilant with our COVID-19 mitigation protocols into the fall and winter as the pandemic shows signs of resurgence. There are new levels of uncertainty around public health and economic recovery while the pandemic lingers on. Our organizational budget remains tight as we work to rebuild and grow back to full strength.
Your gift of $100, $250, $500, or even more to the “It Takes a Village” Fund will sustain Concordia Language Villages in a critical rebuilding year and will ensure our continuation of language and cultural immersion programs for next summer, and all future summers!
We remain confident and strong because of you, our Global Family, and the love you show us every day. From trusting us with your villagers to investing in our program, your support this past year helped us not just survive, but also thrive, inspiring our theme for 2022: Grow. Learn. Thrive.
We continue to persevere, prosper and grow beyond these challenging times. Our commitment to inspire courageous global citizens remains our guiding star as we look ahead to a brighter future!
