Renovation Update: Room 206

image-3This summer, Global Visionaries has acquired a new office space which is being transformed into a brand new Youth Center for our students, parents and alumni. Our interns and volunteers have been working on it diligently and the renovation is finally completed! We are very excited to unveil the new room tonight at our Open House Event. Here are a few snapshots of our new space under transformation, taken over the last three weeks.

Like our main office, the new Youth Center has five large windows that allow ample natural light to enter the spacious room. A new shelf and a white board have been installed in this corner of the room.

The whole room is now covered with brand new carpets. The full kitchen behind the two doors on the left is equipped with a full fridge, a sink and other utensils. You are now welcome to bring snacks and ice cream!

It has been a really exciting project and we would like to thank all our wonderful interns and volunteers for the hard work that they put in. Thank you all for making this happen!
