It's like a photography camp for teens, but with service projects and cultural immersion included
- Learn new photography and writing techniques as you gain international experience in the field
- Broaden your creative space as you encounter sights, people, and events that you'd never find close to home
- Work with pros who are handy with a camera and a pen, and see your expertise grow
- Go to locations of cultural and social significance, and capture the experience through your camera lens or on paper
- Make friends with like-minded high school students who share your passion for photography or journalism
High school photography class or journalism camp just can't compete with a real-world experience out in the field in another country. Unlike photography camps for teens close to home, GLA offers you the chance to take photos of world landmarks and write about experiences in communities without access to the same level of education or health care as back home. Add to your portfolio and surprise friends and family when you return home with your final products, whether it's a new photo collection or writings on your one-of-a-kind experiences.
A GLA adventure to fuel your passions, or find a new one.
