Your teen is bright, motivated and ready to plan their summer. A-hem? This is where you come in.
The best way to help your teen plan a meaningful, productive summer is to connect with other parents who’ve had recent success. They know how crucial it is to make the most of summer break and how to sort through the many options out there.
Thankfully, there’s an incredibly helpful Facebook group specifically for parents whose kids have taken part in service-learning programs abroad. The members of this group have been through the entire process and get down to the nitty gritty before your very eyes. (They’re even happy to answer your questions.)
Just a couple of clicks to find out:
How did you choose a destination country?
How safe did your son or daughter feel?
Did your teen eat well? Make friends?
Did the counselors live up to their bios?
Would you – and your son or daughter – do anything differently?
Simply follow this link and connect instantly with parents like you. Drop in anytime to ask a question or find out what other parents are talking about. Don’t just take our word… take theirs!

The parent facebook group is a great source for parents. It allows parents to communicate with one another and also communicate with GLA staff. It provides information from everything from flights to safety to paying for trips. It is a great source all parents should know about. It personally helped convince my mother to send me with GLA as when she joined the group she realized she wasnt the only nervous parent around and that it was ok.
