Global Leadership Adventures Newsletter - Experience GLA

Our message this month: Love your mother. Yes, the mom who fixed your corsage just before you got whisked away to prom this weekend and is considering letting you volunteer in Africa this summer. But also our universal mother, the mom of all moms… Mother Earth. We’ve all been given wide mountain ranges to follow and find new adventures on, oceans that teem with colorful life, and animal companions to share this planet with. These are the ultimate gifts, and we should do our part to cherish and preserve them.

[video] Dominican Republic: Building a Sustainable World 
One of the main lessons of our Flagship program in the DR this summer is to “learn to live with the world, not off it.” Besides helping build homes for Dominican families, interacting with the island’s children and working with grassroots leaders, you’ll also experience a pristine coastline and beautiful region, far off the tourist track.

Words of Wisdom
“The mountains are calling, and I must go.” If Mother Nature is the mom of moms, John Muir deserves an honorable mention as the father of our National Parks. Muir captured the irresistible pull of wild places in this famous quote (BTW, if you’re looking for an epic summit to conquer, Machu Picchu’s a great one).
