Experience defines us. Where you are on your life’s journey is a reflection of your experiences and the choices they've shaped. That’s why we believe at GLA that travel experiences are so important - because they're life-changing. While we're often looking ahead to summer, when 1000s of teens travel abroad with us, there’s a lot going on year-round. In this issue, we’re sharing just a few of those things. Enjoy!

Program Highlight - London: One Nation, Two Worlds
While most tourists in London focus on checking off bucket list items like seeing Big Ben, GLA volunteers will help at-risk youth channel their energy into productive activities such as gardening, art, and adventure sports. They’ll also discover how the city is combatting issues like food waste and homelessness in innovative and exciting ways and explore the English countryside, including trips to stunning national parks and quaint coastal towns.
