Global Leadership Adventures Newsletter - Experience GLA

The holidays might be the most wonderful time of the year… in a world without summer! With 2017 just ahead of us, we're getting excited for our next season of service-learning programs and I invite you to take a peek into this month’s collection of stories. We love sharing the change that GLA alums embody and hope their stories inspire more teens to pursue responsible travel as a way to learn about the world and themselves.

Twende – Let’s go!
Last summer, GLA alum Joey Chen traveled to Africa on the Tanzania: Heart and Soul of Africa program. We don’t call it “heart and soul” for nothing—in Joey’s video you’ll see that the energy and spirit of the Tanzanian people is completely infectious.

I didn’t want to just fundraise. I wanted to actually do something,” said Kenneth Wah after going on the Ghana: Children of Africa program. Kenneth returned to Ghana multiple times after his trip to personally start a hands-on robotics program and introduce STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) skills in local classrooms.

“I’m nervous about traveling alone. Will I make friends?” The answer is, yes, definitely! From the moment you arrive at Home Base, you’ll be surrounded by other GLA students who share your passions.
