Thank you to all students and their families who registered for 2020 GER2I summer youth programs as well as to all individuals who were planning to teach or counsel in these programs. Unfortunately, due to the national emergency surrounding transmission of Covid-19, we have elected to cancel our youth programs for summer 2020. Doing so will contribute to efforts to stem the spread of this disease. Since inception of GERI youth programs in 1979, we have never cancelled, but we believe this year it is important to do so. Be safe, stay well, and we hope to see you in 2021 youth programs.

For those of you who have already registered,  you will be receiving information via email concerning refunds, cancellation, and next years’ programs.


Thank you!
