The GLA Difference

leadership & transformation

This is how we do it…


Leadership is at the core of every GLA program. We empower students to discover what they are passionate about and teach them how to begin affecting change within themselves, their communities, and the world.  Through group discussion, meaningful service, workshops, speakers and excursions, GLA students work with skillful mentors and local partners to tackle tough questions:  Where do we fit in?  How do we connect our knowledge and talents to those in need?  How do we create and motivate change, both at home and abroad?  Students learn to demonstrate a thoughtful global perspective and be open-minded to differing opinions.  They become inspired to transform the world.  Our adventure is change, and it begins with us.
