Discover Europe with GLA
Embark on an European adventure ﬁlled with unique experiences, insider access, cultural immersion, and all the must-sees and must-dos.
Where our service-learning programs go deep, Europe Discovery programs go broad. These experiences deliver on our exploratory travel methodology to immerse students in a country or theme through a series of locations deliberately selected for their impact and significance–iconic monuments, historical sites, and cultural exploration are all on the agenda.
This program type is ideal for students who are curious about or have a strong interest in history, culture, the arts, contemporary issues, and the role of each city or region on the global stage.

Link two Europe programs together, and spend three nights in Amsterdam!
Our Europe programs are intentionally designed with session dates to allow students to connect two Europe Discovery programs seamlessly with a weekend stopover in Amsterdam. This is normally a $500 add-on, but we will waive this fee for students who link two Europe programs together. While in Amsterdam, experience the city’s UNESCO-listed Canal Ring, historical buildings, and the unique culture of the Netherlands with GLA chaperones.
Get a taste of authentic Dutch cuisine and gear up for your next adventure! Linking two Europe programs together through Amsterdam is strongly recommended for additional context and insight into the European continent. This also provides peace of mind for parents, as GLA provides supervision, lodging, meals and a brief rest before the next journey begins.
The Amsterdam link is available July 3 – 6, 2020.
