We were excited to see that Global Leadership Adventures was mentioned in this New York Times article.
As the article mentioned, many students are fundraising to pay the tuition or working extra jobs. We have seen an increase in the number of students who have been able to do fundraising to pay their entire program fee. In addition, we have increased the amount of financial aid that we award. We have given out a record amount of financial aid this year!
We hope that this economic recession will herald in a new era of students working to raise money for their tuition and an increase in the number of organizations who follow our lead in expanding scholarship and financial aid opportunities.
Although the economy may be tanking, there’s never been a more crucial time in history to be a global citizen.
