"I absolutely loved this trip and it was truly the best experience of my life! I loved everything about this trip including the excursions, service, leadership workshops, and workouts. I always felt safe everywhere we went and I gained so much confidence in myself. I am now a more positive and courageous women and I am going to bring all of the skills and knowledge back to my teammates. I learned many valuable life lessons through GLASS."

"It was unforgettable. Go for it.  You meet amazing friends and make genuine connections. The mentors are also an amazing resource while your there and I appreciated having them."

"My daughter keeps telling people that, 'It was the experience of a lifetime, the best thing I've ever done.' To hear these words every time that someone asks makes it worth the cost and nerves of sending her abroad. She read us her journal in the car front to back and told us all that she learned about being a leader and how much she learned about herself."
