A grant from The Piqua Community Foundation helped support a 2019 summer Step-Up event held by Miami County C.I.S.V. (Children’s International Summer Village.) 52 students from 11 countries participated in the event, hosted at the Piqua Junior High School. More than 30 local families and 40 community members assisted as students experienced 23 days of engaging, hands-on activities including a baseball night-out at the Dayton Dragons and a service project at Troy’s Lincoln Center.
C.I.S.V. offers peace education and experiential inter-cultural opportunities for youth. Any parents who are interested in local global education for their children (ages 10 and up) may contact Amanda at 513-292-4850.
