Global Leadership Adventures Newsletter - Experience GLA

With tongue in cheek, some call “Back to School” the most wonderful time of the year. For GLA teens returning from a volunteer trip abroad, it can be bittersweet. By way of example, this Instagram post by @maggie.rose426: "The only school I want to go back to tomorrow just so happens to be in Belize with these cuties ❤". In this issue, we’ll attempt to brighten any Back to School “blues” by sharing more of the summer's experiences, and setting our sights on next year’s journeys. All aboard!

Video: Thailand in Two Minutes
Video: Peru by GoPro
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to join GLA’s Peru: Service in the Sacred Valley program, take a look at Angela Liu’s entry to our 2016 YouTube Video contest. Seeing Peru through the lens of Angela’s GoPro camera is like trekking in her shoes (and don’t miss the part where there’s breakdancing in a mud pit). Watch it and give Angela a thumbs up if you agree.

Spring Break
Set Your Sights on The Taj Majal
Our program in India is based within sight of the majestic Himalayas, and will immerse you in the warmth of community life in Dharamsala, with its children and families. But what makes the trip complete for many is the chance to visit the Taj Mahal.

#WOW (Words of Wisdom)
As we make the shift back to school this month, and look forward to a new program in South Africa next summer, we’re reminded of these wise words from Nelson Mandela about the true value of education.
