Just as our 21-day GLA Flagship programs offer the most in-depth immersion within a single community, our multi-programs provide an incredible breadth of experiences across multiple communities around the world.
By linking programs together, you can extend your volunteer abroad experience this summer beyond the three-week maximum provided by any single one of our programs. Or you can combine two shorter programs together to customize an experience that fits your unique interests and very busy summer schedule!
For example, if you’re moved by GLA’s mission and think the African continent is the place to make your impact, you can extend your stay in Africa with Global Leadership Adventures beyond 21 days. And even then, your options are flexible. Option #1, for those inspired by working with Children, is participating in our Ghana: Children of Africa™ Flagship program in Anlgoa first, and then capping it off with another two weeks in Ghana at our other Children of Africa™ site at Krobo. Or Option #2, if you’re more interested in making Ghana your home away from home, and want to mix up your service options, allows you to combine that Children flagship program with another two weeks during sports-based service at Ghana: Sports Service Adventure. Finally, Option #3 expands your horizons beyond just Ghana, as you can link one of our Ghana programs with Maasai warriors and Mount Kilimanjaro on our Tanzania: Heart & Soul of Africa program.
So many options! And the best part? All tuition prices for Multi-Programs reflect a 10% discount from regular program tuition costs.
Each of these linked programs range from four to six weeks, and they represent the peak of the Global Leadership Adventures experience. As highlighted in the Africa examples alone above, these programs give students the opportunity to experience two different countries, or two unique communities within the same country. Our staff members on each program engage students in discussion to link common themes woven throughout the linked program. Through these juxtapositions, students can contextualize the issues facing each community – both common and unique – in ways that build upon the depth of experience on each program.
