TEEN TRAVEL & VIRTUAL LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS
THANK YOU FOR VISITING FROM GO OVERSEAS!
It is Global Leadership Adventures’ founding belief that young people – given the opportunity and privilege to embrace different cultures, confront timely challenges and develop their own unique leadership styles – will make this world the kind of place we can all share and explore together.
We believe leaders are made, not born, and that leadership is a life skill than can and should be developed.
The Global Leadership Adventures Team has custom-designed a six-week online internship from the ground up, in direct partnership with global nonprofit organizations and social enterprises.
This internship is part-time and designed for flexibility, so student interns can enjoy their summers and also be highly engaged with the online experience.
Our virtual internships are open to teens ages 14-19. The goal? To provide an opportunity for students to become real-world interns, in active collaboration with our international partner organizations, GLA internship supervisors, and most importantly their fellow peers in the internship.
Each intern will choose from one of several thematic Focus Areas that will define not only the global nonprofit partner organization or social enterprise you will work with, but also the area of interest you will dive into in support of a particular UN Sustainable Development Goal.
Each Global Impact Virtual Intern will complete a Core Curriculum, where you will learn and develop critical skills that will support you on your future education and career paths.
Are you ready to be the change you wish to see in the world? If you are, we’re ready to welcome you to the team.

"THE WORLD IS AN IMMENSE PLACE. AND WORKING TOWARD SOLVING ITS PROGRAMS IS LIKE TRYING TO MOVE A MOUNTAIN ONE PEBBLE AT A TIME. ON THIS TRIP, I REALIZED THAT EACH PEBBLE MAY SEEM INSIGNIFICANT TO YOU OR ME, BUT CAN LOOK LIKE A BOULDER TO OTHERS."
