The GLA Experience, Step by Step

Preparing to go on a GLA program, from the enrollment portal to the airport gate!

For most people, the GLA experience starts the first time one of your friends or family members tells you about their international service-learning trip with GLA—each year, a large percentage of our students are repeat travelers or were referred by a past GLA student. You’ll feel it the first time you pick up the phone and call one our friendly and knowledgeable Enrollment Specialists. Everyone from our board and Executive Director to our in-country staff around the world is genuinely invested in each student, each program and each lifetime memory. Our people are the heart and soul of GLA and it shows!

Check out the infographic below for a step-by-step breakdown of the road to your GLA journey, and the folks you'll meet along the way.
