The Peace Corps is not open to kids in high school. As a teen volunteer with Global Leadership Adventures, however, you're in the unique and incredible position of being part of a diverse group of high school kids from across the globe that want to make a difference - and be the change - far from home. GLA was founded by returned Peace Corps volunteer Andrew Motiwalla, and many of our program staff are Peace Corps veterans who want to share their experiences with inspired kids your own age. These programs allow high school students like you to make a difference!
