Global Leadership Adventures Newsletter - Experience GLA

We staged a “takeover” of our Instagram account this month to share a fresh perspective on GLA service projects where teen volunteers work with children. Seeing these programs through their eyes - and their lenses - reveals more than an itinerary ever could. So we’re happy to announce our annual contest winners, to celebrate the creativity and generosity of GLA teens in using media to tell us about their experiences. We congratulate them, and welcome you to enjoy the winning videos and photos, too.

#WoW (Words of Wisdom)
It’s not a new thought, but a powerful one worth sharing. It’s something GLA teens hear often out in community service, as well as in leadership exercises. Photo credit and thanks to @candiwanders, a GLA staff member who shared this image from the Dominican Republic.
