What. A. 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. 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.

The obstacles to making this summer happen were immense: travel restrictions around the world, continually evolving state and federal health protocols, short-handed departments, program staff availability, strict session limits and a tight organizational budget. Despite these challenges, we pulled through and had a tremendous summer of language and cultural immersion. This summer was made possible only through the grit of our year-round employees, the creativity of our seasonal staff, the courage of our villagers, the trust of our villager parents and the support from generous donors. In the end it literally took a Village to pull this off, and with your help, we did it! Thank you!

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!
