Global Leadership Adventures Offers Exciting Teen Volunteer Abroad Programs


For parents, it’s never too early to start teaching your children about global awareness. Experiencing the world thru the eyes of so many unfortunate individuals will prepare your children to see the bigger picture, and not to mention, give back to those that need a helping hand. Attending summer volunteer programs specially designed for teens and high school students in one such way to start learning now.

Established in 2004 and headquartered in the U.S., Global Leadership Adventures inspires the next generation to realize their potential to transform the world and their role in it by offering teen summer community service programs abroad. Programs are open to students from all over the world between the ages of 14 and 18. You must apply before May to be considered to be a teen volunteer abroad.

As an Anthropology student, part of my training includes fieldwork and numerous summer volunteer programs. Prior to visiting a country or even another state, it's always imperative to learn and immerse oneself in the host country's culture and history, and its natural resources. Global Leadership Adventures encourages this type of study and it will certainly prepare your teens traveling abroad to these summer programs for their work with others.

There are dozens of destinations available for summer programs, and to be quite honest, I’m a bit jealous I can’t go myself.

Destinations Available Through Global Leadership Adventures

Galapagos, China, India, Bali, Peru Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Ghana, South Africa, and Tanzania.

Attending summer volunteer program for children will help them realize the life of nature and it's surrounding. This tend to open themselves to what is life is all about. This will serve as their study to history, natural resources and countries culture.
