Global Leadership Adventures (GLA)

My daughter traveled to Thailand this past summer with Global Leadership Adventures and absolutely loved it! This was a great experience for her because she learned a lot about independence and leadership while having fun in a safe environment. I was apprehensive to let my daughter go away for 2 weeks across the world but after talking with GLA alumni and staff I was reassured that this was a good, safe decision. This experience is one that can not be gained anywhere else and I would recommend that anyone interested takes the leap and do it!

Institute for Field Research Expeditions - IFRE

I did a 1 week language and cultural programs and 3 weeks photo journalism work.
The pick-up from the airport was excellent, the guest house in the first week was perfect. The food was excellent, the people were all so nice. Our teacher Pratima was so passionate and gave a lot of insight in the cultural aspects of Nepal. Thank you for that Pratima!

The 3 weeks photo journalism was at the other side of Kathmandu, the guesthouse was clean, good food and the people also very nice. The house is located in a nice quiet area. I really enjoyed the football match that was organized by the sun with the other volunteers/interns. Ram, the journalist that helped me everyday is very nice, had good tips!
In total 4 of my photo stories were published online.

I would definitely recommend this this program to anyone who wants to do volunteer work in Nepal!

CSA - Center for Study Abroad

Had a good experience in Rome. CSA is cheaper than other study abroad sites. I also liked the easy registration process, and payment system. They provided my confirmation docs in a timely manner. The staff are very busy and they can't always answer the phone. Email is the best way to reach staff. I would go with them again.

Projects Abroad

My name is Emily and I went on a spring break trip to Ghana, Africa. It was one of the best weeks of my life for so many reasons. I got to work with some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met thanks to Projects Abroad. The other girls I volunteered with were from all over the world including Holland and Denmark. I made connections and friendships that will last a lifetime. Most of the volunteers shared a host home and we spent our free time together, usually eating ice cream. Our guides were so helpful and fun to work with. Richard showed us how to examine the patients at the schools, hospitals, and communities. He made Ghana feel like a second home with his knowledge of the country and he made the whole experience as memorable as it could be!

Global Leadership Adventures (GLA)

Two of my daughters went on the Global Leadership Adventure's Galapagos trip last summer. I'm beyond grateful for this program, my kids were completely safe and they enjoyed every minute of it. The stories they cam back with still manage to amaze me! The staff made the process easy and stress free. I definitely recommend GLA to any parent who wants to send their child on an eventful volunteer trip abroad.
