Events & Webinars

Global Leadership Adventures is based in sunny San Diego, California. However, we travel around the country during the winter months to meet prospective families that are interested in volunteer programs abroad. If you are not able to attend an open house or GLA event, we have regularly scheduled webinars where you can have an interactive Q & A with program mentors, Enrollment Advisors, and even GLA Management.

See the full schedule below:
