Global Leadership Adventures offers high school students journeys that have often been called "inspiring." Programs are offered in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America and students from around the globe come together to volunteer side by side with local people, learn first hand about social issues and explore places of historical and cultural significance. Although each program is different, they all build awareness of other cultures, educate students on important issues, and develop leadership skills necessary to be effective in a globalized world and in the formation of becoming "global citizens."
