GLA Group Adventures Abroad

Your Adventure Starts Here!

STEP 1: Explore our program themes and destinations.  

Choose from our pre-designed programs or customize your own. 

STEP 2: Talk to our professional, dedicated staff.  

Contact your personal GLA manager to help you sift through program options and help answer any questions.

STEP 3:  Build your itinerary.  

Partner with your manager to identify the right program location and theme, choose your activities, and create a custom itinerary based on your group’s interests, budget, and  accommodation needs. 

STEP 4:  Enroll your participants.  

Once your program is built, we will provide you with a toolkit to help you recruit participants. We are also happy to hold calls or video session with parents and staff. 

STEP 5: Get set. Get ready. Go!  

GLA can provide you with pre-departure support including a customized website, resources for organizing flights, payment coordination, cultural preparation, and more through video conference or in person as possible. 

GLA's global partnerships span more than 20 countries, making travel safe and options endless. Our longstanding personal relationships in every community that we travel to, paired with over ten years of experience bringing diverse groups abroad to authentic, non-tourist neighborhoods, allow for maximum customization options, genuine cultural immersion and expert facilitation on the ground.

We're not in the business of tourism - we aspire to transform. GLA offers more than just streamlining group travel logistics. We craft end-to-end group travel with care, designing curriculum and itinerary around your unique objectives so that travelers need only focus on absorbing the moment while abroad. Our alumni consistently return motivated to act upon life-changing experiences.

One of the students attending a GLA group travel program said it best when he articulated just how valuable already knowing his classmates - and fellow volunteers - could be when traveling abroad: "You know what people's strengths are, what people's weaknesses are. Going as a class is way better, because I know everyone, and everyone knows me. I'm the happiest kid because I went."
