About Us

Global Leadership Adventures (GLA) presents a fresh, new approach to service-learning abroad for intellectually-curious and socially-oriented teenagers. Programs are offered in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Latin America. Participants explore historic and natural sites in different countries while they learn the local language and history, and serve the community through meaningful volunteer efforts. GLA’s goal is to provide life-changing experiences that will cultivate a global perspective and open-mindedness in students that will ultimately inspire them to become great leaders and global thinkers and seek positive change in their own communities.

GLA is a division of Terra Education ("Terra"), a leader in the field of international service-learning. Terra also operates Discover Corps, which offers volunteer vacations abroad for adults and families, and Summer Springboard, which offers innovative pre-college summer programs at some of the nation's leading colleges and universities.
