What comes to your mind when you imagine spring break?
Each spring, high schoolers across the country are given the opportunity to take a much-deserved weeklong hiatus from the stresses of school. Some will spend their week playing video games with friends; others in a lounge chair on a beach somewhere. For students who are interested in an alternative spring break option, however, there are amazing opportunities to travel abroad and give back to communities in need.
Think about it- using your spring break from school to volunteer in a tropical paradise? It’s the best of both worlds! The opportunity to make a meaningful impact in the lives of others is a life-changing one. And, you don’t have to make the journey with a church group or through your school. Any high school student with the desire to make a difference can be on their way to the Dominican Republic this April with Global Leadership Adventures!
GLA’s Spring Break Service Adventure gives students the chance to help improve the lives of residents in an impoverished rural community, while also packing a ton of fun into the week! You’ll explore pristine white sand beaches, snorkel through crystal blue waters, and ride a catamaran through the waves of the Caribbean! You’ll also learn about the vibrant Dominican culture and gain a deep understanding of how sustainability can help a community grow in harmony with its surrounding environment.
