YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Let’s shift the conversation from awareness to action
The Global Leadership Adventures International Foundation funds community-led, international development work as well as need-based scholarships for young people without the resources to travel.
Global Leadership Adventures created the GLA International Foundation to be a year-round channel for direct action to support the community led initiatives our students become passionately involved in each spring break and summer.
Because GLA covers all overhead costs, 100% of every donation to our Foundation goes directly to important development work happening around the world.

Fund work that is action-oriented, community-led and focuses on root causes
Teens can make a difference. And you can, too.
GLAIF came to fruition at the request of Global Leadership Adventures’ program alumni. Returning from international service-learning programs, these teens were determined to find a way to continue to make change in communities around the globe by supporting locally driven projects from afar.
GLAIF, a non profit 501c3 organization, is a platform which allows these young leaders the opportunity to stay actively involved in the causes they became so passionate about during their GLA experience.
GLAIF aims to build a network of globally minded alumni, staff, partners, friends and family who are passionate about community led development and offers a way to transform this passion into action.

Learning AFAR Fund Spotlight
Travel is the best form of education for young people.
Through the Global Leadership Adventures International Foundation’s partnership with Learning AFAR, we were able to run a memorable service-learning program in Ghana, West Africa for teens from New Orleans, whose fathers had passed or were incarcerated, and would otherwise not be able to attend a travel abroad program.
Students were able to travel through grants provided by the foundation’s Learning AFAR Fund, and all their travel expenses were covered to ensure these teens had an exceptional experience in Ghana.
Check out this unforgettable video on YouTube that follows that story of one of our student travelers, Malik, as he heads from his hometown in New Orleans to West Africa for a life-changing experience.
