GLA PROGRAM THEMES
Global Leadership Adventures runs Community Development travel programs for teens who want to broaden their horizons and help to give back to communities in-need.
On a GLA Community Development program, make a difference in your host community and nearby areas through infrastructure improvements, environmental conservation, or whatever is most needed by the community at the time of your arrival.
Tackle community-led service projects focused on what's most needed by the community at the time of your arrival. All that’s required is a desire to help!
Learn how human communities and natural ecosystems are intertwined, and how environmental work supports local community development.
Join in and participate in local customs as members of the community share with you their traditions, and make new friends with your peers on-program.
