Diversity & Inclusion

Community Partner Fund + Global Leadership Adventures International Foundation

At the Global Leadership Adventures International Foundation, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of our partnerships around the world.

For staff, students, our community partner organizations, as well as the communities we engage with in the field, diversity is about fostering representation and providing a safe and welcoming environment for all. Similarly, inclusion is about building community and making everyone feel their voice is heard and welcome.

We invite teens the world over to participate in our programs regardless of race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, country of origin or any other basis.

We also collaborate with local partners based in the communities where we operate to make sure our efforts are community-led and representative of the location in which we are serving.

As an organization dedicated to delivering life-changing experiences to students traveling abroad, we understand the value of open dialogue and are committed to building bridges with communities around the world different than our own. Real, positive change only comes from openness, acceptance and a willingness to both embrace diversity and advocate for inclusion.

Respect is inherent in all of our interactions among students, staff and all members whose communities we serve. Respect means accepting and celebrating differences, and considering all points of view. That is the GLAIF way.

We’re committed to do our part to make the world a more respectful and accepting place for all.
