Global Leadership Adventures Newsletter - Experience GLA
Have you heard this one? “Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.” I’m reminded of this saying now, while we celebrate the service and adventures our students are experiencing this summer and simultaneously plan next year’s programs (2017 session dates are now online!). As the summer continues to unfold, we bring you more ways to share in the experience and look forward to your feedback. Enjoy!
