Leadership & Intentional Program Design
GLA travel programs create ambitious, ethical leaders.
LEARNING TO LEAD ON A GLA TRAVEL PROGRAM
At GLA, we believe leaders are made, not born: leadership is a life skill that can, and should, be developed.
Leadership is woven throughout all elements of the program.
From role play style to exploration to getting students out of their comfort zone and into leadership roles within the group, GLA intentionally weaves this approach into the daily experience on our travel programs.
Every site visit, cultural workshop and community service project is an opportunity to put these leadership skills into action. Our holistic approach to leadership and learning creates a lifelong impact for students.
TO BE A FORCE FOR GOOD IN THE WORLD
We believe that framing the program experience and various daily activities around leadership helps create personal development and growth opportunities for students to dig deep into their vision and purpose, as well as their knowledge of themselves and the wider world.
