In high school you begin developing the worldview that drives you, the passions and pursuits that push you forward on a defined path. GLA offers a variety of volunteer abroad programs that cater to your specific passions.
Love working with children and advocating for their needs? GLA children’s issues programs empower you to make a positive global impact for at-risk and impoverished children. Perhaps you’re focused on environment and ecology. GLA’s green-minded programs take you to destinations like Latin America and West Africa to do hands-on research. You’ll work with locals to find solutions for sustainability and discuss ways to preserve local flora and fauna. If your focus is on animal conservation, then you’ll love our animals and wildlife programs. You’ll work with researchers on wildlife sustainability in exotic locations like Costa Rica, the Galapagos Islands and Tanzania.
From sports to poverty alleviation to public health, you can find a GLA program to match your intense interests. And the best part is that the programs that feed your passion will also make a global impact. Talk about making a difference!
In addition to our standard programs, each with their different themes, we offer different types of programs.
