Most teen volunteer opportunities are found close to home, but think of the even greater impact you can make in under-served communities abroad. By traveling with GLA, you're in the unique and incredible position of being part of a diverse group of high school students from across the globe that want to make a difference - and be the change - far from home. Our summer programs for high school students focus on meaningful service work and pair cultural activities and excursions alongside volunteering. You also have an enviable choice: be an explorer and find your passion in service of a community-in-need, or be an enthusiast and fuel your passion on a project that builds on your interests.

A GLA adventure to fuel your passions, or find a new one.
