About Us

A journey rooted in extraordinary social impact

Our own global journey started over a decade ago in 2004. At the time, we were part of the African Leadership Academy, a grassroots effort to transform gifted but poor African High School students into the next generation of leaders.

Today, transformation remains at the heart of our global business as we expose students to the power of service, learning and adventure around the world.

At GLA, we’ve operated for over a decade on the belief that travel and cross-cultural experiences are not only educationally enriching, they are crucial to the formation of global citizens and the success of lessons learned in the classroom.

GLA Group Travel will work with you to create the perfect trip for your group, with either predesigned or customized itineraries that provide a safe environment for members to learn, grow and challenge themselves.

GLA’s global partnerships span more than 20 countries, making travel safe and the 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.
